Krimson debuts at Aviation Africa following successful African Union summit
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – 26 February 2019 – Krimson Aviation, the Ethiopia-based trip planning and flight support company is making its debut exhibition appearance at this year’s Aviation Africa being held in Kigali, Rwanda. The annual meeting is the continent’s leading event for the African Aerospace and Defence industries which meet for a conference and 100-exhibitor strong exhibition. It provides Krimson with an excellent platform to meet existing and new business aviation clients and partners, as well as engage with the wider commercial African aviation sector.
Dawit Lemma, the company founder and Managing Director is attending the show following hard on the heels of an intense period handling more than 260 passengers during this year’s African Union summit.
Over a ten-day period, starting on 3 February, Krimson’s team handled a mix of aircraft types supporting twenty-two turn-arounds across a range of aircraft, including Pilatus PC24, Gulfstream G550, Bombardier Global Express, Dassault Falcon 7X, McDonnell Douglas DC9, Boeing Business Jet, Boeing 737, and a VIP B777.
Krimson supported refuelling, over-fly permits, landing permits, hotel accommodation, transport, and food and beverage orders, with more than 3,000 plates of food being ordered for crew and passengers. The annual African Union event welcomes leading government and state figures from across the continent to Addis Ababa and requires the ultimate in professionalism and discretion to meet the high expectations of attending senior state ministers, officials and high-ranking government figures.
“We applied excellence which originates from my Swiss heritage and combined it with our local knowledge of the airport authorities and regulations, to deliver an unparalleled service to the African Union delegates. The nature of the meeting means time-lines are fluid and flight plans are constantly changing. This dynamic environment really tests us, but we are proud to have met all the challenges, unexpected requests, and delivered service excellence throughout the week. My team were amazing and I’m now looking forward to sharing details of the Krimson offering with delegates at Aviation Africa,” said Lemma.
Aviation Africa is taking place in Kigali from 27 & 28 February 2019, at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Convention Centre.
