Ethiopian Airlines has affirmed its commitment to serve the Ghanaian travelling public with increased convenience and efficiency.
The veteran Pan African Airlines committed to connecting Africa together and to the rest of the world has introduced four additional flights to its existing seven flights per week to connect Accra to the rest of the world.
Mrs Aniley Eshetu, the Area Manager for Ethiopian Airlines to Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, speaking at an event to commence the inaugural night flight, said the additional flights would be operated on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
The four times weekly additional flights, which depart Accra in the evening, will bring the airline’s customers more convenient options to enjoy immediate connections to its vast intra-Africa network and to Middle East, and Asian cities.
The increase in flight frequency will also allow the airline to provide more travel options to passengers’ onboard sister airline, ASKY Airlines, who seek to connect flights in Accra to various destinations in the world.
She said these new additions coupled with its daily morning flights would enable the airline to connect Accra eleven times a week to its expanding global network spreading across five continents.
” It is an honour to serve this great nation and great people,” she added.
The area manager said the airline, which commenced its maiden flight to Ghana on November 8, 1960, has since then provided uninterrupted service for more than six decades.
She said that over the decades, the airline had established itself as a leader in all facets of the aviation business, technology leadership, network expansion, and aviation mentoring.
She said the airline had been playing vital roles in enabling air transport services, thereby contributing to the social, economic, and political development of the African continent.
She commended the government for the support throughout the journey. ” With your continued patronage, we project towards more successful and commendable service years ahead.”
Mr Fredrick Obeng Adom, a Deputy Minister of Transport, said Africa had made significant improvement in the areas of telecommunication technologies, transport infrastructure, and many more.
He said, however, there was more to be desired from the African on this continent.
The Deputy Minister said it was not economically wise for a traveller to travel two continents just to connect to a neighbouring country via air travel.
