Ethiopian Airlines to start double daily flights

Ethiopian Airlines has finalized preparations to start double daily flights to Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport starting March 2015.

Ethiopian has been providing reliable air service to Mumbai for over 43 years with the launch of its first flight in December 1971. The airline currently has daily flights to Mumbai and New Delhi. Both daily flights to Mumbai will be operated with the ultra-modern B787 Dreamliner aircraft, which offers passengers unparalleled on-board comfort with the largest windows in the sky, higher level of cabin air humidity greatly reducing fatigue, high ceiling, the latest inflight entertainment system and much reduced noise. With the double daily flights to Mumbai, Ethiopian aims to provide optimal connectivity options for passengers traveling between India and its 49 destinations in Africa. Africa-India traffic is witnessing a significant rise owing to the economic growth of the two regions and their increasing trade, investment and tourism ties in addition to the travel demand of the large Indian community in various African countries. CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group, Tewolde Gebremariam, said: “We are very bullish on the prospects of Africa-India market. By increasing our frequency to double daily to Mumbai and expanding our codeshare agreement with Air India, fellow Star Alliance partner with the inclusion of domestic points in India and major destinations in Africa, we aim to become the airline of choice for travel between Africa and India by offering seamless and convenient connections thru our main hub in Addis. Going forward, we plan to increase our current frequency to New Delhi and start operations to additional destinations in southern India.”
