In its seven decades of operation, Ethiopian Airlines has become one of the continent’s leading carriers, with a strong reputation for efficiency and operational success.
Marking the momentous expansion Wesgro CEO Tim Harris said, "The increase in flight frequencies from Ethiopian Airlines is a welcome addition that strengthens the Western Cape’s ties to one of the fastest growing African markets and proves the popularity of Cape Town as a destination of choice for international travellers.”
Ethiopian Airlines CCO Busera Awel added, “Serving Africa is our prior commitment as a Pan-African carrier, and increasing services to Cape Town, known for the Table Mountain is part of this commitment. The increase in flight frequency to Cape Town, our third gateway in South Africa, will enable tourists and business travellers to enjoy convenient connectivity options to and from 95 Ethiopian global networks on-board our state-of-the-art fleet, Boeing 787.
Furthermore, our 10 times weekly service will enhance our capacity to over 400% in a year time. We always strive to offer the best possible passenger and cargo services the industry has to offer, including a wide variety menu of meal services with the newly inaugurated modern In-Flight Catering facility, served with a multiple award winning inflight services.”
Ethiopian currently flies to three cities in South Africa, namely: Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
