IUGB Foundation Signs a Partnership Agreement with Ethiopian Airlines
The IUGB Foundation has signed a partnership agreement with Ethiopian Airlines to support the 4th Commencement Ceremony of IUGB and to offer free airfare tickets for five IUGB students attending Leaders of the World Conference at Montclair State University in October 2018. Two recent graduates won the top two prizes offered by Ethiopian Airlines at the graduation ceremony. One student won a free round-trip ticket from Newark to Abidjan. And other student won a dinner for three with Country Director of Ethiopian Airlines and a parent.
The Foundation and the University will also sign a long-term corporate agreement with the airline which will deepen the relationship. Ethiopian Airlines is one of the longest running airline companies in Africa. Ethiopian currently serves 100 international and 21 domestic destinations operating the newest and youngest fleet. In May, it began offering direct flights from Newark to Abidjan. This new partnership with Cote d’Ivoire and with institutions like IUGB and IUGB Foundation tells you that Ethiopian Airlines continues to be committed to the growth and development of Africa.
