The International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC) lost three of its members in the Ethiopian Airlines crash in Addis Ababa on March 10. Suzan Abul Farag, Esmat Orensa, and Graziella de Luis were traveling to Nairobi to interpret at the UN Environment Assembly.

The UN lost 21 employees in the crash. The UN flag was lowered to half mast on March 11 in honor of the staff who died on the flight. Memorial ceremonies were heldat the UN’s New York and Geneva offices later in the week. ATA’s Interpreters Division has also posted a personal tribute to their colleagues on the Division’s home page.

ATA sends its heartfelt wishes and condolences to the friends and families of those who lost their lives.
