Michael Yohannes, Country Manager for Ethiopian Moves to the UK

Ethiopian has announced Michael Yohannes is leaving his role in Ireland to take up the position of Country Manager for Ethiopian in the UK.

Michael arrived in Ireland with his family in early 2015 and was pivotal in launching the first Dreamliner service from Dublin airport flying direct to Los Angeles and Addis Ababa.

It was also the first time an airline connected the three continents of Africa, Europe and North America through Dublin airport.

Since then, Michael has expanded the service to four times weekly from Dublin to Los Angeles and Dublin to Addis Ababa plus grown the Ethiopian brand so that it is now a familiar with the Irish public.

Michael said: “I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time here in Ireland. I feel truly happy I was given the opportunity to bring Ethiopian into the Irish market and I want to thank  my team and the travel trade for supporting me in that mission.

”It is now time for me to pass on the baton to my successor, Meseret Tekalign Bekele and I wish her lots of success in her new role.”
