Ethiopian adds 10th European destination


Ethiopian Airlines has finalised preparations to start three weekly services to Madrid (Spain) starting on 2 September.

Flights to Madrid will be operated through Rome (Italy) and will bring the number of the airline’s international destinations across five continents to 83.

Flight ET702 will depart Addis Ababa at 00h30 on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and land in Rome at 05h50. It will continue to Madrid an hour later, at 06h50, and land at 09h10. The return flight, ET703, will leave Madrid at 20h15, land in Rome at 22h40, depart for Ethiopia at 23h40 and arrive at 06h40.

Madrid, the political, economic and financial hub of Spain, is the country’s biggest and Europe’s third largest city. It also houses the headquarters of the World Tourism Organisation and numerous major corporations.

Passengers to and from Madrid can connect to destinations in the airline’s route network, such as Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro and Dar es Salam (Tanzania), Nairobi (Kenya), Entebbe (Uganda), Lusaka (Zambia), Luanda (Angola) and Johannesburg (South Africa).

The airline recently seperated its flights to Kinshasa and Brazzaville (see story here).
