The Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, remarked: “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.”
Based in Maputo, Mozambique’s capital, Ethiopian Mozambique Airlines presently serves 8 domestic destinations in Mozambique including the capital Maputo, Nampula, Tete, Pemba, Beira, Nacala, Quelimane, Vilankulos and Chimoio.
The launch of this direct international flight to and from Beira and Addis Ababa will enable international passengers from Europe, North America, Middle East and Asia to enjoy seamless connections to and from Pemba, Nampula, Nacala and Tete with Ethiopian Mozambiqe Airline’s domestic service, reaching some of Mozambique’s main seaside tourism resorts.
The route will be served with a Boeing B737-800NG offering a two class layout of Business and Economy.
