Ethiopian Airlines has initiated talks with the government of Djibouti over a possible partnership with Air Djibouti, reports ch-aviation.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tewolde Gebremariam said that talks have focussed on developing a joint-venture between the sides with the Port of Djibouti, a major freight hub for the Horn of Africa, also of interest.

“China for the first time has established a military base in neighboring Djibouti. The major political powers have big military vessels in Djibouti. The country is expanding its seaport and airport. So it can serve as the Dubai of Africa if we do the right thing together,” he said.
