Ethiopian Airlines has announced it will commence four weekly flights to Enugu, Nigeria from August 24th, 2013.
Located in south-eastern Nigeria, Enugu is the capital of Enugu State.
Enugu will be the third city in Nigeria served by Ethiopian Airlines.
The airline currently serves Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, and Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city.
Enugu will be Ethiopian’s 46th African and the 76th international destination, while the airline will be the first international carrier to fly to the city.
Ethiopian will also increase its five weekly flights to Abuja to daily service.
“We are proud to add Enugu in Nigeria to our wide global network covering five continents.
“The addition of Enugu to our network is a continuation of our commitment to provide the best possible connectivity options to passengers travelling between Africa and the rest of the world.
“Enugu will be our third destination in Nigeria after Lagos and Abuja, which are both served with daily flights,” said Tewolde Gebremariam, chief executive, Ethiopian.
With the new service, four times per week, passengers to and from Enugu will find convenient and hassle-free connections to the many global destinations in the Ethiopian-wide route network such as Mumbai, Dubai, London, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Cairo and Beijing.
