The two airlines said in a media statement in Windhoek Thursday that they would service the Windhoek-Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) route three times a week and the services of both airlines beyond their respective hubs.
The agreement will allow the airlines to expand their global network through each other’s services and also facilitate the provision of competitive and convenient travel choices to customers.
“It is my sincere belief that such strategic collaboration among African airlines is one of the necessities to see African aviation thrive and grow faster in line with the economic development of the continent,” Ethiopian Airlines Acting Vice-President for Strategic Planning and Alliances Girma Shiferaw said.
He was quoted as saying that the agreement is viewed in the expansion of Africa’s aviation network.
