Ethiopian to start flights to Istanbul

Ethiopian Airlines will start thrice weekly services to Istanbul with the latest B737-800 New Generation with Sky Interior, as of its winter schedule. Istanbul is the largest European city and Turkey’s historic, industrial and financial capital.

Commenting on the planned launch of the new flights, Ato Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, said, “We are pleased to launch new services to Istanbul. Turkey being one of the fastest growing countries among the emerging economies, availability of seamless connectivity options would further catalyze the channeling of investors from both countries and make their business more facilitated. Moreover, our new flights to Istanbul will complement the daily services being provided by our Star Alliance partner Turkish Airlines. Our new flights will also enable our valued customers to make immediate connections to 52 African destinations with minimum hours connecting time in Addis Ababa.”

Ethiopian is a global Pan-African carrier serving more than 92 international destinations across 5 continents and operating the youngest fleet in Africa with less than the industry average age of 5 years. The airline is expanding to new destinations. In the past year, it introduced services to Tokyo, Manila, Dublin, Los Angeles, Cape Town, Durban, Gaborone, Yaoundé, and will soon launch thrice weekly flights to New York-Newark.
