Ethiopian to launch cargo services to Ahmedabad

Posted 22 March 2017 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines has added Ahmedabad, a fifth cargo gateway to India, to its global cargo network as of March 28, 2017.

Ahmedabad, India’s second oldest stock exchange and largest producer of cotton, is an emerging economic and industrial hub of India, inhabiting a population of more than six million.

 

Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “Ethiopian cargo service to India dates back to the early 90’s; launching our first cargo station in Mumbai. Complementing the booming economic relations between India and the African continent at large, we have made available dependable cargo services to Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi and now to Ahmedabad; our fifth Cargo Gateway to India. While operating in the major trade lanes between Africa, Europe, Middle East and Asia,  our cargo network is efficiently linking the Indian sub-continent and Africa farther with China and Hong Kong; providing the Indian market with minimum weekly import capacity of 240 tons per week. I believe our new services to Ahmedabad will further strengthen the existing trade and commercial ties between the two fastest growing regions of the world.”
