Over the last 12 months the airline has carried over 17,500 passengers and flown close to 1.5 million miles between Manchester and Addis Ababa.

Ethiopian Airlines, UK country manager Michael Yohannes said: “We are proud to celebrating one year of service from Manchester. In addition to our operation from London Heathrow the 4 times a week Manchester service makes Africa even more accessible for both business and leisure passengers from the north of the country. Passengers have been enjoying the comfort of our Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s and the convenient onward connections from Addis Ababa to the rest of the continent.”

Tim Bettney, traffic and sales manager for Manchester added “The first year of operation has been very successful. Addis Ababa has not surprisingly been our top destination with onward routes to Zimbabwe, Cape Town and Malawi proving very popular. Our Cargo service has performed well carrying 222 tonnes of goods between our continents. Our Ethiopian service and hospitality have provided passengers with close to 35,000 meals and 30,000 cups of our famous Ethiopian Coffee.”
