Ethiopian Airlines Celebrates 50 Years of Flying to China


Ethiopian Airlines, the leading and fastest growing Airline in Africa, is celebrating the 50th year of the commencement of its service to China.


The Airline made its first flight to Shanghai on 21 February 1973 and operated there for a while before it shifted its flights to Beijing on 07 November 1973, which is one of its very popular destinations in Asia.

Marking the 50 years of service to China, Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mr. Mesfin Tasew said, “The beginning of flights to China 50 years ago heralded an important milestone in the history of the Airline. Ethiopian was among the first to serve China and has ever since been providing reliable services to the country.


As China is one of the key destinations in Asia, we will maintain our commitment to serve the country, thereby providing access for the Chinese people to the big African market.

China-Africa relation is projected to grow significantly in the coming years, and Ethiopian Airlines continues to serve the needs of the travelling public by availing the best connections to Africa and beyond, using its ultramodern aircraft.


We are pleased to have served the people of China for the last 50 years, and we will continue to be a bridge connecting China with African nations.”

Ethiopian Airlines is the first African carrier to fly to China, and has been connecting the country with the whole of Africa for half a century now. China is now one of the biggest markets for Ethiopian Airlines with more passenger services to 4 destinations, namely, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Chengdu and Hong Kong.


Ethiopian Airlines has been offering uninterrupted service to destinations in China even during the Covid-19 pandemic although the frequency of its passenger flights were restricted.


However, the frequency of its flights to Chinese cities is increasing significantly following the lifting of restrictions by the Chinese government.

Ultimately the flights will get back to the pre-COVID 19 levels soon with daily flights to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong as well as 10 and 4 weekly flights to Guangzhou and Chengdu respectively. When services are fully restored, Ethiopian will operate a total of 35 weekly passenger flights to China.


In addition to passenger flights, Ethiopian Airlines also operates 31 cargo flights per week to 9 destinations in China, including three new additions.


The Airline has been serving daily cargo flights to Guangzhou and Hong Kong, four weekly flights to Shanghai and three each to Zhengzhou and Wuhan along with two to Changsha.

Ethiopian also added three more freighter destinations to China recently: two weekly flights each to Xiamen and Shenzhen as well as one to Chengdu.


With 5 passenger and 9 cargo services, Ethiopian Airlines operates combined 66 weekly flights to 20 destinations in China.

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.
