ethiopian airlinesExpanding its footprint on the continental market, Ethiopian Airlines is exploring plans to fly to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second city, according to media reports quoting the flag carrier’s International Services managing director, Esayas Woldemariam.

 

“We are planning to expand to Bulawayo. We are studying our numbers and because we have a desire to connect Bulawayo’s population, especially traders and business people, to Dubai and to China,” he said.

 

He added, “In China, we go to Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Hong Kong and next month, we are going to land in Chengdu.”

 

Plans to launch a service to Bulawayo come after the airline made its maiden flight to the Zimbabwe resort town of Victoria Falls recently. The Africa’s largest carrier will be flying four times a week on the route — Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The airline already has daily flights to the capital, Harare.

 

Ethiopian flies to 56 destinations in Africa. It has a fleet of 87 aircraft and has ordered an additional 55 planes.

 

Esayas said the airline continued to operate to Harare when other airlines stopped flying there, as “we are African to the bone marrow”.
