Africa’s largest airline group, Ethiopian Airlines, is delighted to announce that it will launch seven new destinations within five months during the first half of 2017. This is one of the greatest expansions in Ethiopian’s long and illustrious history.

From February to June, Ethiopian will launch new services to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), Antananarivo (Madagascar), Conakry (Guinea), Oslo (Norway), Chengdu (China), Jakarta (Indonesia) and Singapore (Singapore). With the addition of these stations, Ethiopian will have service from Addis Ababa to 98 different international cities located across the world.

Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “Africa’s share of Global Aviation is currently the smallest at only around 3%. As the largest airline group in the continent, we are highly concerned by this low base of air connectivity and are therefore setting record expansion in progress to enable Africans to enjoy safe, reliable and economical air connectivity both within the continent and between the continent and the rest of the world.

Looking beyond the current economic slowdown, especially in the oil export dependent economies of Africa, Ethiopian firmly believe that the continent will become the magnet for foreign direct investment, trade and tourism, which are the engines of air travel growth. In turn efficient air connectivity also drives socio economic development and we are happy to contribute our share to the 21st Century African Transformation.”
