The flight will also help Guinean business people to travel to major world trading cities across the Ethiopian Airlines network .”

This new service takes a very special place in Ethiopian network expansion endeavour, as it is the first of the seven new destinations that Ethiopian is going to launch in five months duration. Covering the largest network in Africa unrivalled by any other carrier, Ethiopian has been filling the gaps of air transportation in the continent. Moreover, as Africa’s economy grows the need for air transport has increased significantly and availability of accessible and hassle-free air connectivity is of paramount importance.
