Ethiopian Airlines Commences Scheduled Service to Bahrain

Following a 6-year absence, Ethiopian Airlines has recommenced flight services between Addis Ababa Bole International Airport and Bahrain International Airport, Bahrain in the Persian Gulf.

The thrice weekly service to Bahrain was inaugurated at a reception ceremony held at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport on August 17, 2017.

According to Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, the reintroduction of Bahrain service became necessary due to "the growing trade, tourism and investment ties between Bahrain and Ethiopia and the continent of Africa at large".

The new service which is linked to the airline's existing 3 weekly Addis Ababa-Dammam service, is operated by the airline's latest Boeing 737-800 New Generation with Sky Interior.

Bahrain, a nation comprising more than 30 islands in the Persian Gulf has been at the center of major trade routes since olden days with growing economy over the past decade.

With over 100 passenger and cargo destinations worldwide, Ethiopian's network connects Africa with the major trading partners in Asia, Middle East, South and North America and Europe.

Ethiopian currently flies to major cities in the Middle East including Beirut, Dammam, Doha, Jeddah, Kuwait, Dubai, Madinah, Muscat, Riyadh, and Sharjah.

Ethiopian Airlines previously operated scheduled flight services to Bahrain from July 2007 to November 2011.

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