Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, is to be added to the Etihad Airways global network from November 2012.
The airline will also start flying to the Indian city of Ahmedabad in the same month. The two new cities will expand the carrier's reach to 86-passenger and cargo destinations around the world.
The new routes will be served by a two-class Airbus A320 and support the aims of Etihad Airways to connect key strategic cities with its home base of Abu Dhabi, enhancing commercial and leisure travel with the UAE’s capital city.
Flights between Abu Dhabi and Addis Ababa, its ninth destination in Africa, will initially operate five times a week, increasing to daily in 2013. Services will operate daily between Abu Dhabi and Ahmedabad, the airline’s ninth destination in India. Ethiopia is the largest African market that Etihad Airways is yet to serve and the second most populous country in Africa. It is expected to contribute strong business and leisure traffic within the airline’s network.
The airline anticipates strong traffic flows from Ahmedabad to Abu Dhabi and onto its European and US destinations. www.etihadairways.com
