Ethiopian AirlinesEthiopian Airlines has announced it will be returning to the Kaduna International Airport, which it utilized for six weeks during the rehabilitation of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport’s runway, in March, this year.

The airline, in a signed by its Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Tewolde GebreMariam, in Lagos, Thursday, said it will now officially commence scheduled flight operations three times a week to the Kaduna airport, from August 1.

“We are pleased to commence scheduled operations to Kaduna, our fifth city in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. As a Pan-African airline, serving our beloved continent, Africa has always been a source of pride for Ethiopian Airlines.

“With this commitment, Ethiopian has been able to create a missing link, availing easy movement of Africans from one corner to the other. During the temporary closure of Abuja Airport for reconstruction four months ago, we were the first foreign carrier to land at Kaduna Airport, allowing our passengers to experience ultimate comfort on-board our B-787 Dreamliner,” the statement said.

According to him, the move is in line with the airline’s long-term strategic roadmap, Vision 2025, expanding and availing a more efficient intra-African network.

GebreMariam assured that the airlines would keep playing positive roles in catalysing the socio-economic development of Africa.
