The only international air transport service linking the Nigerian capital Abuja with the rest of the world has touched down with the arrival at Kaduna International Airport of Ethiopian Airlines’ new Boeing B787 Dreamliner.
Airline CEO Tewolde GebreMariam said: “Ethiopian Airlines is a pioneer pan-African carrier which serves as a catalyst for African integration in the African union. After 70 years serving the continent, we are still strong in our motto ‘Bringing Africa together and closer to the world’.”
Ethiopian now serves Nigeria’s four main cities, with daily flights to Kaduna and Lagos, three-times-weekly service to Enugu and twice weekly to Kano. It also provides the country with professional flight training at its aviation academy.
The airline has also added over the last few days services between Addis Ababa and Victoria Falls, Antananarivo and Oslo, plus cargo flights to Ahmedabad.
Last month, Ethiopian, a Star Alliance member, started flights to Conakry and by July will have begun operating to Chengdu, Singapore and Jakarta. The carrier says it envisages reaching 120 international destinations worldwide by 2025.
