THREE NEW DESTINATIONS IN THREE DAYS – AND THERE IS MORE TO COME
(Posted 23rd March 2017)
Between the 26th and 29th of this month will Ethiopian Airlines on three subsequent days launch three new destinations, namely Victoria Falls, Oslo and Antananarivo.
Announcing the launch of three new destinations in three days,ET’s Group CEO Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam said: ‘Three new flights to three new destinations in just three days is one of the greatest expansions in Ethiopian’s long and illustrious history. We are proud that we are able to link these new stations to the Ethiopian network in such a short period of time. This is only possible due to the continued support and dedication of the thousands of Ethiopian Airlines’ employees who strive for the best service, best safety, and best on time performance every day and the great vote of confidence that we are enjoying every day from our valued customers‘.Victoria Falls, Oslo and Antananarivo are three of the seven new destinations to be launched during the first six months of 2017. Ethiopian started flights to Conakry in February 2017. Before July, Ethiopian will start service to three destinations in Asia: Chengdu, Singapore and Jakarta. Ethiopian intends to reach 120 international destinations worldwide by the year 2025.
Meanwhile is the aviation world puzzled why it should take the airline that long to make their announcement which next generation small single aisle jet it intends to sign up for, a decision which according to suggestions made by their CEO last year was expected in late 2016 or within the first few weeks of this year but with Q1 coming to an end next week does this still hang in the balance.
