ETHIOPIAN ADDS MILAN TO EUROPEAN DESTINATIONS
Effective July, in other words immediately, will Ethiopian Airlines add 5 weekly flights between Addis Ababa and Milan / Italy, using a B767 aircraft. Traffic days out of Addis will be Monday to Thursday and Saturday, with no flights on Friday and Sunday for the time being. Return flights out of Milan will correspondingly take place between Tuesday and Friday, with no Saturday or Monday flight to Addis.
The timings are convenient for travelers from across Eastern, Central and Southern Africa as connecting flights from those parts of Africa arrive in time to make an easy connection in Addis.
Ethiopian is also flying daily from Addis to Rome and this latest addition of a European destination will undoubtedly spur yet greater competition with ‘neighbours’ Kenya Airways, which is presently lacking long haul aircraft, due to the delays of their B787 delivery, to add more destinations on their intercontinental network, while in inter African traffic the two arch rivals are neck on neck in terms of destinations.
