Ethiopian Airlines, the major airline in Africa, will begin offering a new passenger flight to Copenhagen, Denmark, on May 22, 2023. The flight will operate five times per week, except Tuesdays and Sundays.
We are glad to open a new route to Copenhagen, Denmark, our 21st destination in Europe, with the flight launch, Copenhagen will become a crucial gateway for Ethiopian Airlines in northern Europe and southern Scandinavia. Thanks to the vast network of Ethiopian Airlines across Africa, the new flight will enhance the air connectivity between Europe and Africa, thereby facilitating trade, tourism and diplomatic relations between the two regions.Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO- Mr Mesfin Tasew
Late last week, the airline announced that it would begin a new service between Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Atlanta, USA, on May 16, 2023, operating four times a week.
This new route will be Ethiopian Airlines’ 5th passenger destination in the US, following Chicago, Newark, New York and Washington.
It has for a long time been our desire to improve the connection between Copenhagen and Africa. Therefore, it is really good news that Ethiopian Airlines, who for the last 5 years have been awarded as the best airline in Africa, will now start flying to Copenhagen. The airport in Addis Ababa has grown to become one of Africa’s most important HUBs, with onward connections to more than 60 different cities in Africa; thus, this new route will be an amazing gateway to the whole continent for Copenhagen.Chief Executive Officer Copenhagen Airport
The new direct route will open up new possibilities for Danish businesses, particularly in the pharmaceutical sector, due to the advanced facilities and specialized pharma wing of Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services, he added.
The airline will use a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with 315 seats on the route. This route was previously served by Ethiopian Airlines from 1999 to 2003 but was then suspended.
