Le Maire said:  “The recent launch of a flight to Marseille by Ethiopian Airlines is indicative of the growing partnership between Ethiopia and France. There is a huge potential for further partnership in aviation related areas.”

GebreMariam added: “It is a special privilege and honor for us to meet with H.E. Mr. Bruno in our Headquarters and we highly appreciate his visit. We, at Ethiopian Airlines, are very happy on our partnership with the French Government and various French global companies like Airbus, Safran, Thales, ADPI (Air Port De Paris International) etc. … We are working together to expand our partnership to the next level. Our Airbus fleet is growing very fast with twelve A-350 in service and 12 on order. We are also evaluating other airplane models from Airbus. The recent addition of the beautiful City of Marseille to our fast-growing network of 121 international destinations is also a very strong sign of a growing relationship between Ethiopia and France.”
