Ethiopian flights to Vienna will bring the total number of its international destinations across five continents to 80. With Vienna nine European cities are served by the airline. Ethiopian says that through commercial cooperation with Austrian Airlines, a fellow Star Alliance member with a strong network in Central Europe, it aims to provide both way connectivity options for travellers.
“We are very happy to spread our wings to Vienna, which is one of the most popular convention and conference centres in Europe. In addition to serving the growing travel needs between Vienna and Africa, we will be able to offer efficient connections between Africa and Central/Eastern Europe in cooperation with our Star Alliance partner, Austrian Airlines. Europe, which is still the largest trading partner of Africa, is an important region for us,” said CEO Tewolde Gebremariam. Ethiopian provides convenient connections, with minimum layover in Addis Ababa, to 48 African destinations.
The extra Heathrow slot will provide some respite for the airline, the regular 787 Dreamliner with 270 seats now often replaced by a 399-seat Boeing 777-300ER. www.ethiopianairlines.com
