Addis Ababa, 20 February 2014 (WIC) - Ethiopian Airlines announce that it has received the 2013 "GOLD Level Boeing Performance Excellence Award" for its outstanding performance at the Wire Kits Harness Manufacturing Plant.

The pursuit of excellence is not just a hallmark of our wire kits harness manufacturing plant. It is also the defining characteristic of Ethiopian and the bedrock of its continued success in all areas of its global operations," said CEO Tewolde Gebremariam.

Ethiopian Airlines Wire Kit Harness Manufacturing Plant is one of only 124 suppliers to be awarded the Gold level recognition among thousands of Boeing suppliers.
