Ethiopian Airlines: From an Aeroplane to an Eatery

An Ethiopian entrepreneur used his skills to display his passion by turning an opportunity into gold. Guttama Gutta bought an old Ethiopian Aircraft Boeing 737, and converted it into an eating place for customers. His innovation was welcomed by all and sundry and it cost him 30 million birr (US$1.5 million) investment to buy, renovate and decorate.

In a hope to improve his business, he ventured into creating a recreational place where the engine-less aircraft can provide indoor and outdoor food and drink service in Burayu, 15 kilometres west of the capital Addis Ababa.
This is a recycling effort on a grand scale. Innovative entrepreneurs in Africa like Mr Gutta should be encouraged to mentor the budding youths of the continent.
