Ethiopian Airlines has begun its four-times-per-week service between Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC) and Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport (ADD/HAAB).
The route, which operates on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays is being operated using a state of the art Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft equipped with Ethiopians Business Class and Economy Cabins.
The service offers the chance to connect with Ethiopians network across Africa.
Speaking at the launch at Manchester Airport Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam said, “We’ve been flying to London since 1973, more than 46 years, so we are not new to the UK market. But we are very happy to expand our services closer to the customer in Manchester now. Today we can travel the customer conveniently to 60 destinations in Africa with an immediate connection in our hub here in Addis” adding “The connectivity we are establishing between Europe and Africa is facilitating trade investment, tourism and people-to-people ties.”
