Over the next six months, Ethiopian Airlines will add seven new destinations in what will make 2017 probably a record year of new cities served out of Addis Ababa.

From the beginning of February to the end of June will Ethiopian launch new services to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), Antananarivo (Madagascar), Conakry (Guinea), Oslo (Norway), Chengdu (China), Jakarta (Indonesia) and Singapore (Singapore). With the addition of these stations, Ethiopian will have service from Addis Ababa to 98 different international cities across the world.


Said Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of the airline group: ‘Africa’s share of the Global Aviation is the smallest which is only around 3%. As the largest airline group in the continent, we are highly concerned on the low base of air connectivity in the continent and we are setting record expansion to enable Africans enjoy safe, reliable and economical air connectivity both within the continent and between the continent and the rest of the world.

Looking beyond the current economic slowdown especially in the oil export dependent economies of Africa, we firmly believe that the continent will become the magnet for foreign direct investment, trade and tourism, which are the engines of air travel growth and in turn efficient air connectivity also drives socio economic development and we are happy to contribute our share in the 21st Century African Transformation’.

In 2016 Ethiopian Airlines did launch flights to Moroni (Comoros), Windhoek (Namibia) and Newark (United States) as well as adding three more cities in Ethiopia – Hawassa, Kebridahar and Dembidolo.
