Ethiopian Airlines has finalised all preparations to launch a direct thrice weekly flight to Istanbul, Turkey as of April 1, 2019.

 

Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “It gives us great pleasure to launch flights to Istanbul, connecting Europe’s largest city to the over 60 African destinations we serve, through our hub Addis Ababa. Turkey being one of the fastest growing countries among the emerging economies, availability of seamless connectivity options will facilitate the channelling of investors and enhance business ties between the two regions.

“As we forge ahead on the path of growth and success as envisioned in Vision 2025, we will keep opening new routes to all corners of the world bringing Africa ever closer to the rest of the world.”
