Ethiopian Airlines is to inaugurate the reopening of the Abuja Airport with its Airbus A350-900.

The scheduled service on the Addis Ababa Abuja route will start on April 18, 2017.

Following this move Ethiopian Group CEO, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “As a veteran Pan African airline, it has always been our source of pride to connect our beloved continent Africa together and beyond. Our presence in Nigeria dates back to the 1960’s, same time the Federal Republic of Nigeria got independence from foreign colonization. We have always given our best to Nigeria at all times, both at good and challenging times, and we have been part of Nigeria’s historic growth  and always consider ourselves as vital partners in the history and growth of Nigeria as a country.

The A350 is yet one of the landmarks in our 70 years proud history; providing exceptional levels of luxury and reliability for a totally unique passenger experience. Hence, with the reopening of Abuja Airport, the extra features of our game changing fleet, Airbus A350, will be awaiting for our esteemed Nigerian travellers.  We shall continue to avail critical air connectivity options and connect African countries together and far beyond.”

Ethiopian currently operates 20 weekly flights to four Nigerian cities; Lagos, Abuja, Enugu and Kano.
