Ethiopia, April 11 – Ethiopian Airlines is delighted to announce the launch of new routes to Democratic Republic of Congo and Madagascar as part of the company’s strategy to serve bigger markets. The launch was done late on March this year, with three new flights to the two countries.
Their aim, according to the company’s manager is to boost tourism and encourage growth and development in the competitive field of aviation sector.

Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, said they are not only keen to provide direct services to the destinations but offer connectivity and interconnection for better services.
Other than the new flights in Kisangani and Mbuji Mayi in DRC, the airline is flying as well to the country’s capital Kinshasa, Goma and Lubumbashi. Its reach has seen a significant growth and development in the cities with the efficient transport service to the people.
The Ethiopian now serves close to 58 destinations with the additional flights and more than 100 globally, making its reach and influence stronger. The Madagascar Embassy in Ethiopia was delighted with the Pan-African Airline’s visa request , that proves to be a cracking deal between the two parties. It will make flying easy for the travelers who often use the airline.
The Ethiopian could add more fleet to cater for the busy schedule at hand to ensure there are no breaks in between for effective transport system and satisfaction of the customers.
