Ethiopian Airlines (ET) has unveiled plans for a significant expansion of its flight services to Ghana. Currently, the airline operates 11 weekly flights to Accra’s Kotoka International Airport, and it intends to increase this frequency to 14 flights per week.
This expansion underscores Ethiopian Airlines’ dedication to serving the travel market in Ghana.
Mr. Lemma Gudeta, Chief Commercial Officer of Ethiopian Airlines, discussed this development during a working visit to Accra, Ghana, emphasizing the airline’s commitment to enhancing its presence in the region.
”Ethiopian Airlines currently operates 145 planes, and we do have enough capacity, especially out of the main hub in Addis Ababa. We have aircraft positioned to cater to the increased demand in Ghana.”
He noted that Ethiopian Airlines, despite its name, is indeed an African carrier with a mission to connect and serve the entire African continent.
“We strongly believe that Ethiopian Airlines might be known by the name Ethiopian, but it’s an African carrier, and it’s our obligation to serve the general public in Africa. Therefore, we strongly believe that we should reach all cities in Africa and also do it deeply by increasing frequencies,” he said.
Ethiopian Airlines (ET) is well-positioned to make a substantial contribution to the growth of the aviation sector in Ghana, facilitating increased connectivity for travelers within Africa and beyond.
This expansion highlights the airline’s pivotal role as a bridge for both business and leisure travelers, further solidifying its position as a prominent African carrier.
