Ethiopian Airlines has rolled out stopover packages without any additional airfare that cater for all leisure needs with a view to promote tourism into Ethiopia, starting from August 1, 2018.
Passengers travelling via Addis Ababa can now take advantage of the stopover offerings from Ethiopian Holidays to discover and experience the many historical, cultural, religious and natural treasures of Ethiopia, Land of Origins.
The packages range from sightseeing in Addis Ababa, the diplomatic capital of Africa, to visits to the preChristian era obelisks of Axum, the stunning medieval rock-hewn churches of Lalibela and the amazing 9th century mosques of Harar.
Other attractions include the majestic castles of Gondar, the stunning source of the Blue Nile, the jawdropping Simien Mountains, the splendor of the lake side resorts of Hawassa and Arba Minch, or the unique coffee farms of Kaffa, birth place of coffee, and more.
With its many riches, the world has yet to truly discover Ethiopia, and tourism has the potential to become the main foreign currency generator for the country and a mass job creator for the youth.
The stopover packages are easily accessible on www.ethiopianairlines.com, and will pop-up as an option when booking flights transiting via Addis Ababa. It can also be directly accessed at Ethiopian Holidays website: www.ethiopianholidays.com.
An online e-visa service for processing stopover visa is available for all international visitors to Ethiopia at https://www.evisa.gov.et.
Ethiopian Airlines operates the youngest and most modern fleet in Africa and currently flies to more than 115 domestic and international destinations across five continents.
