Ethiopian to begin flight from Mekelle to Asmara next week 

By FBC

Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) said it will begin flight from Mekelle, the capital of Tigray regional state, to Eritrean capital Asmara next week.

The Airlines also announced plans to increase its flights to Eritrea.

Ethiopian resumed a first commercial passenger flight to Asmara after two decades last Wednesday.

“In addition to Asmara, the airlines will open additional flights to Eritrea’s port cities, Assab and Massawa,” Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde Gebremariam, told FBC.

The new flights to Eritrean cities will help the Airlines expand its passengers’ destinations, the CEO said.

Ethiopian currently serves 115 international passenger and cargo destinations across five continents.

Tewolde further said the Airlines will increase its flights to Asmara to twice a day.

According to him, the Airlines could save time and money by using Eritrea’s airspace for other international flight routes.

Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority this week said at least four additional flight routes that cross Eritrea's airspace will be opened soon for traffic.
