Posted 11 July 2017 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines has finalised preparations to start scheduled thrice weekly services to Kaduna, Nigeria, as of August 1st, 2017.

Kaduna, located in north-western Nigeria, is a trade center and a major transportation hub for the surrounding agricultural areas with its rail and road junction.

Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “We are pleased to commence scheduled operation to Kaduna; a fifth city in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. As a Pan-African Airline, serving our beloved continent Africa has always been a source of pride for Ethiopian Airlines. With this commitment, Ethiopian has been able to create a missing link; availing easy movement of Africans from one corner to the other. During the temporary closure of Abuja Airport for reconstruction four months ago, we were the first foreign carrier to land at Kaduna Airport, allowing our passengers to experience ultimate comfort on-board our B-787 Dreamliner. In line with our long term strategic roadmap, Vision 2025, expanding and availing a more efficient intra-African network will remain at the core of our operation and we shall keep on playing the positive role in catalyzing the socio-economic development of our continent.”
