In recent times, there has been an increase in the activity of scammers who post fake promotions and payment platforms in Nigeria for different Airlines. This has necessitated notices to travellers and the general public to beware of these Criminals.
On its part, the Management of Ethiopian Airlines is appealing to the public to always crosscheck the website and payment advice sent to them as many travellers are falling victim to these scammers.
In a statement released on Wednesday and signed by Shimeles Arage, the General Manager of Ethiopian Airlines Nigeria, the airline said "It has come to our notice that scammers and hackers are setting up fake websites with similar names to ours to deceive passengers.
Our official website is www.ethiopianairlines.com and you can download our app for easier and safer transactions.
Ethiopian Airlines will not call you for payment or ask you to pay into any account. Ethiopian Airlines have offices in four cities in Nigeria and can be reached at the international airports in Kano, Enugu, Abuja and Lagos. Please do crosscheck all links before making payments."
Passengers and the general public are therefore, advised to be very careful and vigilant in order not to fall victims. To be on the safe side, always double check before making any payments online.
