Ever high on my travel wish list, Ethiopia is further emerging as one of Africa’s most intriguing new destinations and it’s easy to see why.
Beyond the vibrant capital Addis Ababa, there’s Lalibela’s famous monolithic rock-cut churches that call my name and now one of Africa’s newest biosphere reserves, Ethiopia’s Lake Tana and its island monasteries, are added to the list.
Making it easier to plan a visit, I’ve just been advised that Ethiopian Airlines, the fastest growing Airline in Africa with seven decades of operations, will be adding more direct flights to Cape Town and increasing flight frequency to 10 times weekly from December 1st 2016.
Ethiopian currently flies to three cities in South Africa namely: Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town, with very good connections to Thailand, Europe and beyond.
Ethiopian has become one of the continent’s leading carriers, unrivalled in efficiency and operational success, commanding the lion’s share of the pan-African passenger and cargo network operating the youngest and most modern fleet to 92 international destinations across five continents.
Ethiopian fleet includes ultra-modern and environmentally friendly aircraft such as the Boeing 787, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 777-200LR, Boeing 777-200 Freighter, Bombardier Q-400 double cabin with an average fleet age of five years. In fact, Ethiopian is the first airline in Africa to own and operate these aircraft.
Time to start planning that visit …
