Kano - Ethiopian Airlines plans to start 10 weekly flights to Kano in the next few weeks following an agreement between Nigeria and Ethiopia.
Col. Wesenyeleh Hunegnaw, the Director-General of the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority (ECAA), told newsmen that the agreement was signed in Addis Ababa between the two countries.
The agreement by the two governments would increase operations from the current 18 weekly flights to 31 weekly flights in the coming weeks.
The airline would operate seven weekly passenger flights and three weekly cargo flights to Kano, in addition to its current flights to Abuja, Lagos and Enugu.
Part of the agreement would allow one Nigerian airline to equally fly the Ethiopian route to Addis Ababa and other cities in Ethiopia, while enabling the training of Nigerian aviation staff by the Aviation Institute in Addis Ababa.
