Ethiopian Airlines to Start Flights to Shanghai


Ethiopian Airlines, the fastest growing and most profitable airline in Africa, is pleased to announce the commencement of daily services to Shanghai, China as of 29 March 2014. Ethiopian will operate the Shanghai flight using its Boeing 787 Dreamliner with 24 Cloud Nine Business Class and 246 Economy Class seats.


Shanghai is the largest city in China, and the country’s economic and financial hub with growing ties with Africa. Ethiopian passengers traveling between Shanghai and Africa will enjoy direct flights with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which offers the best on-board comfort of any aircraft with greatly reduced noise, biggest windows in the sky, higher ceiling, higher humidity, unique lightening and extra leg space.

Tewolde GebreMariam, Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO, said “We are very proud of our continuous service to China for over 40 years. Ethiopian was one of only four international airlines to operate to the country back in 1973.


Today, with 28 weekly direct flights operated with latest technology airplanes and multiple awards winning customer service, we offer the best connectivity from 4 major cities in China to 48 cities in Africa and 2 cities in Brazil.


It is really fascinating for us to see that our network in China is growing very fast along with the growth of trade, investment and tourism between China and Africa. Shanghai is the economic and financial hub of a booming Chinese economy, and our direct flights will promote increased mobility of people and goods, which is critically important for the socio-economic development of an expanding society”


Shanghai will be Ethiopian 80th international destination. With this new flight, Shanghai will be connected to 66 cities across Africa via Ethiopian main hub in Addis Ababa.


Convenient connections will be available to and from major African cities such as Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Entebbe, Lagos, Johannesburg, Abuja, Libreville, Luanda, Lusaka, Harare, Maputo, and Douala among others.


A multiple award winner in 2013, Ethiopian was voted as the Best Airline in Africa by the African Airlines Association and by Passenger Choice Awards. It was also recognized by SKTRAX as Best Staff Service in Africa and Best Business Class Airline in Africa by Chinese travelers.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
