Ethiopian Airlines, Africa’s largest has announced the resumption of its flights to Somalia capital Mogadishu, after stopping the service over four decades ago.
Mr. Tewolde Gebremariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, said: “ I wish to express my gratitude to the Governments of Ethiopia and Somalia for making the resumption of these flights possible. The flights will play a significant role in strengthening the people-to-people and economic ties between the two neighbourly and sisterly countries. The flights will also enable the important Somali Diaspora in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Europe and Africa to travel to their homeland via Addis Ababa thanks to our global network of over 116 international destinations.”
The resumption of the service to Somalia came 41 years after Ethiopian Airlines Group stopped its route to Mogadishu in the 1970s.
Ethiopian Airlines is the fastest growing and most profitable Airline in Africa with seventy plus years of operation. The airline commands the lion’s share of the Pan-African passenger and cargo network operating the youngest and most modern fleet to more than 116 international passenger and cargo destinations across five continents.
