Ethiopian Airlines announced it is part of the annual Global Greening initiative of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, 2017.
As part of the “Greenification of the World” campaign, launched by the Irish Tourism Board eight years ago, Africa’s first Ethiopian Airbus A350-900 operator joined a string of world landmarks in this campaign, including: New York’s World Trade Center, City Hall and Heron Tower in London, Plaça de Catalunya and the fountains on Gran Via in Barcelona, Pozzo di San Patrizio in Italy, Matsue Castle in Japan and the Diamond Bridge in South Korea.
The Axum Obelisks, symbol of the wealth and civilization of the ancient Ethiopian Axumite Kingdom, were turned green back in 2015. Ethiopian Airlines launched the first and only direct air route linking Africa with Ireland in 2015.
