Ethiopian Airlines is going to start Beira service in the first week of September. As the fourth largest cities in Mozambique, it will serve as a gateway to most of the nations in Central Africa.

Ethiopian Airlines has recently announced that it will start flights (three weekly service) to Mozambique's Beira effective from September 3 this year. As Beira is considered one of the main commercial cities in Mozambique, it is highly expected to increase the tourists' footfalls from around the world.

"Covering the largest network in Africa and connecting major world trading cities across our global network, we have been filling the connectivity vacuum in the continent not only with primary cities in countries but also with secondary and tertiary cities and towns. Our customers in these smaller cities will get special opportunity to connect to our global network of more than 120 international destinations in five continents with direct flights and fewer stops. Supporting our main hub in Maputo, Beira will serve as our hub in central Mozambique directly connecting passengers to our global hub in Addis Ababa for further connections to various parts of the world," Tewolde GebreMariam, Group Chief Executive Officer, Ethiopian Airlines said, as reported by National Accord Newspaper.

The starting of this direct international flight to/from Beira and Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa will enable global passengers from the Middle East, North America, Europe and Asia to enjoy seamless connections to/from Pemba, Nampula, Nacala and Tete with Ethiopian Mozambique Airline's domestic service.

On the other hand, during the starting of August, Ethiopian Airlines had also added India's Bengaluru to its network. The flag carrier of Ethiopia will commence direct flights between Addis Ababa and Bengaluru from October 27. The service will be operated four times a week. On this network, Tewolde GebreMariam cited that Ethiopian Airlines is a significant player in linking Africa and India and beyond.
