(Posted 31st May 2022)

Ethiopian Airlines is set to start thrice weekly operations to Chennai, India as of 02nd of July 2022. Chennai will join the vast Ethiopian network as a fourth destination in India after New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.

Ethiopian started its service to India with a debut flight to New Delhi in 1966, just 20 years after the airline
was founded. Ethiopian pioneered the air transport linkage between Africa and India. Recently, Ethiopian marked its 50th year anniversary of uninterrupted service to Mumbai, the commercial capital of India.

The flights to Chennai will be operated using B737-8 aircraft as per the below schedule.

Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mr Mesfin Tasew said” I am excited that we are getting closer
to our customers with our signature service and global connectivity options. We have been
connecting Asia and Africa for 55 years now facilitating trade between the two continents. The
addition of Chennai as a fourth passenger destination in India is a testimony of our resilience and
unwavering commitment to serve our customers in India and the continent at large. We will
continue to serve India with enhanced frequency and more destinations in the future
. “


Chennai is a modern cosmopolitan city and the most prominent cultural, economic and
educational centre of South India. Ethiopian has been serving India without any
interruption even during the pandemic cementing the longstanding bilateral relationship
between the two countries. India is one of Ethiopian Airlines key destinations in the Asian
continent and Ethiopian currently flies to three passenger and five cargo destinations with its enhanced services and modern fleet.

In line with the airlines commitment to serve its customers in India, it has been growing its service frequency and destinations since it first commenced operation to the country.

Besides the opening of a new route to Chennai, Ethiopian Airlines’ flight frequency to the cities of Mumbai and New Delhi will increase to double daily and ten weekly flights, respectively, as of July 2022.
