The event was attended by  Sidibe Fatouma KABA, Guinea Ambassador to Ethiopia, Toure Mohamed, Secretary General Guinea Transport Minister, Guinean diplomatic community, Mesfin Tassew, Chief Operating Officer Ethiopian Airlines, and Ethiopian Executive management.

Sidibe Fatoumasaid: “Ethiopian is growing since its creation; and it is a pan-African company. We are very happy and proud that this project is realized which will  strengthen trade, tourism and the bilateral ties between the two nations. The flight will also help Guinean business people to travel to major world trading cities across the Ethiopian Airlines network .”

Tasew added: “We are pleased to launch services to Conakry. This new service takes a very special place in Ethiopian network expansion endeavour, as it is the first of the seven new destinations that Ethiopian is going to launch in five months duration. Covering the largest network in Africa unrivalled by any other carrier, Ethiopian has been filling the gaps of air transportation in the continent. Moreover, as Africa’s economy grows the need for air transport has increased significantly and availability of accessible and hassle-free air connectivity is of paramount importance. To this end, Ethiopian has been working extensively in serving the continent with better and technologically advanced aviation technologies and systems.
