Ethiopian Airlines to launch services to Bengaluru from Oct 27

Africa's largest carrier Ethiopian Airlines said on Friday it will launch passenger flight services to Bengaluru from its hub Addis Ababa from October 27, which will be operated four times per week. The Ethiopian national carrier currently connects the capital city Addis Ababa with New Delhi and Mumbai. These services are operated twice daily.

Besides, it also operates cargo services Mumbai and New Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad. Ethiopian Airlines will launch flight services to India's 'silicon valley,' Bengaluru from Addis Ababa from October 27, the airline said in a release.

Ethiopian Airlines is a significant player in connecting India and Africa and beyond. The new four weekly flights will connect the city of Bengaluru to the ever- expanding Ethiopian network," said Tewolde GebreMariam, group chief executive, Ethiopian Airlines. The schedule on the new route is designed to connect passengers through the airline's global hub in Addis Ababa with short connections besides providing the fastest and the shortest connections between Bengaluru and more than 60 destinations in Africa and South America, he said.

The Bengaluru-Addis Ababa passenger flight will also complement the existing dedicated freighter services to and from Bengaluru, the airline said. Ethiopian Airlines flies to over 120 international passenger and cargo destinations across five continents with a fleet of both Airbus and Boeing planes, including A350s, B787s, B777s, Boeing 777-200 freighter and regional jets Bombardier Q-400s..
