Ethiopian Airlines will soon commence flights to Antananarivo, Madagascar thus increasing its network of destinations to 96.
The airline said in a media statemeet in Addis Ababa Thursday that Madagascar would join the ever-expanding Ethiopian network of worldwide destinations.
The new non-stop flight will operate three times weekly to and from Ethiopian’s hub at Addis Ababa, where passengers can connect to and from cities throughout the world, including Washington, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Rome, Beirut, Jeddah, Cairo, Dubai, Delhi, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing, the statement added .
The statement quoted Ethiopian Airlines chief executive officer Tewolde GebreMariam as saying that as air connectivity is an essential cause and driver of a nation’s socio-economic integration, the new service will certainly contribute to a growing business and bilateral co-operation with other African cities.
Moreover, travellers from Madagascar would be seamlessly connected with Ethiopian’s ever-expanding network across five continents. Ethiopian is a truly indigenous pan-African global carrier which operates the youngest and the most modern fleet on the continent with an average aircraft age of less than five years, it was indicated.
