Ethiopian Airlines To Expand Network To Madagascar March 28
Africa’s largest airline group, Ethiopian Airlines, is to add Antananarivo, Madagascar to its network on March 28, 2017.
With this development, Madagascar will join the ever expanding Ethiopian network of 95 worldwide destinations.
Antananarivo is the capital and the largest city of Madagascar.
The island nation is known as a “biodiversity hot-spot” as over 90 per cent of its wildlife is found nowhere else on earth.
Madagascar is home to lush rainforests and is famous for its curious lemurs.
Ethiopian’s new nonstop flight will operate three times weekly to and from Ethiopian’s hub at Addis Ababa, where passengers can connect to and from cities throughout the world, including Washington, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Rome, Beirut, Jeddah, Cairo, Dubai, Delhi, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing.
Speaking on the pending expansion, Group Chief Executive Officer, Ethiopian Airlines, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, said, “Ethiopian, as a flagship carrier of Africa, is pleased to add Madagascar to its wide route network. Having started serving Africa seven decades ago with our motto “Bringing Africa Closer”, we are now continually enhancing our services and working to “Connect Africa to the World”.
As air connectivity is an essential cause and driver of a nation’s socio-economic integration, our new service will certainly contribute for a growing business and bilateral cooperation with other sisterly African cities.
Moreover, travelers from Madagascar will be seamlessly connected with Ethiopian ever-expanding network across five continents, thanking all who made the route possible.
