The president of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde Gebremariam, said in a recent letter to the Flight Safety Foundation (FSF) that the loss of his airline’s Flight 409 on January 25, 2010, shortly after takeoff from Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport (OLBA), was not due to pilot error, but to a surface-to-air missile, a lightning strike or some form of sabotage.

For Ethiopian Airlines, winning a reputation as a world-class airline hasn’t come easy in a continent not known for its commitment to service or stellar safety record. Seemingly against all odds, it has managed to do just that, all the while expanding its fleet to 48 aircraft and its route network to 83 international and domestic destinations.
