Ethiopian Aviation Academy recognised as IATA Authorised Training Centre

Posted 9 September 2014 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines has announced that the Ethiopian Aviation Academy, the largest aviation academy in Africa has been recognised as an International Air Transport Association (IATA) Authorised Training Centre.

The Academy attained the recognition following the evaluation of its successful application by the IATA Training and Development Institute and the IATA Regional Office. This authorisation will enable Ethiopian Aviation Academy to deliver additional training programmes including IATA’s International Travel and Tourism Training Programme and the Foundation in Travel and Tourism.

Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group comments: “The Academy is the foundation of our success by enabling us to be self-sufficient in critical areas of aviation and by supporting our Vision 2025 for a fast, profitable and sustainable growth strategy. This recognition is the result of the continuous heavy investment we are making in human resource development, a critical pillar of our Vision 2025 strategy. In the last four years alone, we have invested more than US$80 million to expand both the scope of the training and the in-take capacity of the Academy. Today, our Academy accepts over 1,000 students per year to train pilots, aircraft technicians, cabin crew, marketing and finance personnel, customer service agents as well as aviation leaders. Going forward, we plan to increase this in-take capacity to 4,000 by 2025, so as to cater for the growing training need on the African continent.”

 This news follows the announcement in May that Ethiopian Aviation Academy was voted “Airline Training Services Provider of the Year” by The African Airlines Association (AFRAA). The Academy is certified by the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority, the U.S Federal Aviation Administration, the European Aviation Safety Agency, and IOSA (IATA Safety Audit).
