"Let me be clear: Ethiopian Airlines believes in Boeing," these are the words of its CEO Tewolde Gebremariam, despite the fact that one of its aircraft crashed on 10 March near the town of Bishoftu, killing all 157 people on board.
"We will work with investigators in Ethiopia, in the US and elsewhere to figure out what went wrong with Flight 302.
"We resolve to work with Boeing and others to use this tragedy to make the skies safer for the world," Mr Tewolde added, in a statement.
Rejecting US media reports that the pilot of the plane which crashed had not been trained to fly the Boeing 737 Max 8, he said: "We are the only airline in Africa among the very few in the world with the B-737 Max full flight simulator.
"Contrary to some media reports, our pilots who fly the new model were trained on all appropriate simulators."
