Ethiopian at Heathrow

Claimed to be the fastest growing airline in Africa, Ethiopian Airlines celebrated last week 40 years of uninterrupted flights to London.  On 16 June it will launch a six times per week Boeing 787 Dreamliner service from Heathrow, connecting to its hub at Addis Ababa.

Rahel Assefa, is the outgoing Regional Manager for  UK and Ireland.  Next month she returns to headquarters as Vice President Marketing.

"We are very happy to celebrate this milestone of 40 years of service to London, which was one of our earliest destinations and is one of our strongest markets in Europe today.  We have contributed our part in forging closer investment, trade and people-to-people ties between Africa and the United Kingdom.  Going forward, with all Star Alliance member carriers moving under one roof at Heathrow, Terminal 2, we will be able to offer easy and convenient connections between the United Kingdom and Africa.”

The airline currently serves 16 domestic destinations and about 80 worldwide as far as China to the east.  Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo are due to be introduced in July. www.ethiopianairlines.com
