Ethiopian Airlines Group, the largest pan African airline, has resumed weekly passenger services to Enugu, Nigeria from 09 October 2021. The flights are operated on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
This was disclosed in a statement by its General Manager, Shimeles Arage, in Lagos a while ago, stating that every week there would be a flight on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, with B787 Dreamliner.
“Nigeria has always been and continues to be one of our important destinations in West Africa. We are continually improving our products and services to meet our customers’ expectations and the resumption of services to Enugu is key to reach our customers in different parts of Nigeria. We thank the people and the government of Nigeria for their continued support in restarting our service to Enugu.” said Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines
Africa’s largest carrier had ceased its operations in Nigeria following the renovations of the airport’s runway and facilities.
Arage noted that before the closure of the airport for runway repairs, Ethiopian was the only international airline flying to Enugu.
To effectively tackle the covid-19 and to comply with international travel regulations to ensure travelers safety, Ethiopian Airlines started operating flights with fully vaccinated crew on 23rd June.
The CEO Tewolde GebreMariam said that the airline has bought and imported more than 37,000 vaccine shots for the employees and stakeholders.
