Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “As the fastest growing airline in Africa, Ethiopian is pleased to offer the opportunity to business people as well as tourists to explore Jakarta’s potential both for investment and leisure. This move will further increase our presence in Asia, connecting Africa to the Asia region and in turn strengthening the tourism and trade ties between the peoples of Africa and Asia. Moreover, pilgrims and the West African community residing in Indonesia will be enjoying hassle-free connections to Ethiopian’s vast African network via its hub at Addis Ababa. Ethiopian Airlines is working very hard to connect Africa with the major trading centres of the world and Jakarta, Indonesia is one of them. ”
