Seventy years serving the continent of Africa, we are still very strong in our motto, Bringing Africa together and closer to the world. We now proudly serve Nigeria in its four cities: Kaduna and Lagos- daily each, Kano twice weekly and Enugu thrice weekly. And as a result, we are proud to see Nigerians enjoying seamless connections to the rest of the world via Ethiopian for their travels of business and other purposes‘.
