Krimson, the Ethiopia-based aviation services company has attained one of the first new business aviation licences being issued by the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority (ECAA). 

Krimson was awarded the paperwork having completed the rigorous application process which requires providing materials to substantiate the company’s professional experience, employee suitability, financial sustainability, active sector knowledge and technical understanding of the required norms to operate within civil aviation. Only a limited number of licences have been made available to ensure that the holders consistently deliver the certified standards which are comparable to accepted ICAO service levels.

“We are extremely pleased to have attained this licence,” said Krimson MD and founder Dawit Lemma. “After four years of operations it demonstrates that we have the necessary competencies, internal knowledge, and professionalism to enable civil aviation in Ethiopia. The criteria are very strict, and we were able to fulfil all the requirements to satisfy them. Holding the licence will give our growing international customer-base continued confidence that they are working with an African company that has adapted or adopted international standards.”

Krimson offers full flight support, ground handling, charter brokerage and other aviation services within Ethiopia and East Africa to a range of aviation customers including commercial airlines, business aviation operators, and trip planning companies. “
