Ethiopian Airlines ( in short), formerly Ethiopian Air Lines, often referred to as simply Ethiopian, is an airline headquartered on the grounds of Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It serves as the country's flag carrier, and is wholly owned by the Government of Ethiopia. Ethiopian operates under the IATA airline designator ET and the ICAO airline designator ETH; its callsign is ETHIOPIAN. From its hub in Bole International Airport the airline serves a network of 64 international destinations and 16 domestic ones. The carrier flies to more destinations in Africa than any other airline. Likewise, it is one of the few Sub-Saharan profitable airlines, as well as one the fastest growing airlines in the industry. The airline's cargo division has been awarded The African Cargo Airline of the Year in early 2011.

Ethiopian is a member of the International Air Transport Association, and of the African Airlines Association since 1968. The airline does not currently participate in any airline alliance, yet it was accepted as a future Star Alliance member in late September 2010.
