Posted 23 April 2019 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines has finalised all preparations to launch a thrice weekly flight to Marseille, France as of July 02, 2019.

 

Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said:  It gives us great pleasure to launch flights to Marseille, connecting France’s second largest city to the over 60 African destinations we serve, through our hub Addis Ababa. We’ve been flying to Paris since 1971, more than 48 years, so we are not new to the market in France. But we are very happy to expand our services closer to the customer in Marseille now. The connectivity we are establishing between Europe and Africa is facilitating trade, investment, tourism and people-to-people ties.”

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