The new night services are expected to provide more convenient and flexible options to customers by increasing connectivity between the two Ethiopian cities through a weekly night flight schedule.
“The high and sustained economic growth Ethiopia is registering is spurring an unprecedented increase in international and domestic travel to the country,” said Ethiopian Airlines CEO, Tewolde GebreMariam.
“In order to meet this growing travel need, we are continually upgrading the domestic airport infrastructure, expanding our domestic network which now covers 20 points in all the regional states of the country, and increasing frequencies to domestic destinations,” he added.
GebreMariam noted that the night services would make it possible to travel from one city to the other in the morning and return to the city of origin within the same day.
