Ethiopian Airlines has started new services to Durban, its 3rd destination in South Africa after Johannesburg and Cape Town on December 16, 2015.
Durban is the second largest metropolitan city and the second most important manufacturing hub in South Africa. It is also one of the main tourism destinations in Africa because of the city’s warm subtropical climate and extensive beaches.
Ethiopian Group CEO, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: "As a Pan-African airline working to bring Africa together and closer to the entire world, we are bullish on the prospects of continuous expansion of our reach in our home market Africa and beyond.
With continuous service to South Africa for over 22 years, this new and additional service will give passengers additional choice and flexibility by offering seamless and convenient connections thru our main hub in Addis to more than 90 destinations in five continents."
Ethiopian is a Pan-African global carrier serving more than 90 international destinations across 5 continents and operating the youngest fleet in Africa with less than the industry average of 5 years, including the B737NG, B787 Dreamliners, B777-200LRs and the B777-300 ER.
