Ethiopian Airlines expands Nigeria service

06 August 2013, 15:05

Abuja - Ethiopian Airlines announced plans to commence flights to Enugu as well as increase flights to Abuja.

The company, arguably the fastest growing airline in the continent will begin flights to Enugu on August 24.

Current services to Abuja will be increased from weekly to daily flights.

The airline said it will operate four times a week to Enugu, its 76th destination.

"Our flight to Enugu is another exciting step towards enhancing our commitment to the needs of our travelling publics.

"Nigeria has always been and continues to be one of our important destinations in West Africa. We are continually improving our products and services to meet our customers’ expectations.

"We thank the people and the government of Nigeria for their continued support in making this new service to Enugu possible," said Tewolde Gebremariam, Chief Executive Officer of Ethiopian Airlines.

The award-winning Ethiopian Airlines is one of the oldest carriers flying to Nigeria.

It has served the country since 1960.

The airline commands a significant share of the pan-African passenger and cargo network operating fleet to more than 75 international destinations across five continents.

Its fleet include ultra-modern and environmentally friendly aircraft such as the Boeing 787, Boeing 777-200LR, Boeing 777-200LR Freighter and Bombardier Q-400 with double cabin.

It is the first airline in Africa to own and operate these aircraft.
