Ethiopian Airlines Launches Flights to Port Harcourt
Following the closure of Nigeria's Enugu Airport, Ethiopian Airlines will operate flights to Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State of Nigeria from September 3, 2019 until 23 November 2019. The move of operations to Port Harcourt is to maintain Ethiopian Airlines service to the South Eastern part of Nigeria while Enugu Airport is closed for renovation. The flight to Port Harcourt will be linked to Ndjamena, Chad on on September 4th and 5th. From September 5, the service will operate direct between Addis Ababa and Port Harcourt. The three weekly non-stop service will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays using a Boeing 737-800NG. Flight ET0931 will depart Addis Ababa at 8:50 am arrive Port Harcourt at 11:30 local time. Flight ET0930 will depart Port Harcourt at 12:50 and arrive Addis Ababa at 20:05. Nigeria is the only African country where Ethiopian Airlines flies to four destinations. This demonstrates strengthened bilateral relation between Ethiopian and Nigeria. Ethiopian Airlines will resume operations to/from Enugu as soon as the renovation is completed. The date of reopening will be communicated to customers in due course.
