Africa and France has never been closer!
The continent’s largest Aviation Group and SKYTRAX certified Four Star Global Airline Ethiopian Airlines is all set to launch a thrice weekly flight to Marseille, France.
The upcoming services will be available as soon as the 2nd of July, 2019.
France’s second largest city, Marseille, is also the main historical province, and marks Ethiopian Airline’s 20th destination to Europe.
“It gives us great pleasure to launch flights to Marseille, connecting France’s second largest city to the over 60 African destinations we serve, through our hub Addis Ababa. We’ve been flying to Paris since 1971, more than 48 years, so we are not new to the market in France. But we are very happy to expand our services closer to the customer in Marseille now. The connectivity we are establishing between Europe and Africa is facilitating trade investment, tourism and people-to-people ties,” remarks Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam.
“As we forge ahead on the path of growth and success as envisioned in Vision 2025, we will keep on opening new routes to all corners of the world bringing Africa ever closer to the rest of the world.”
Ethiopian Airlines currently serves 120 international destinations across the five main continents, all with young aircraft with average fleet age of five years. With the addition of Marseille-destined flights, the number of passenger flights operated by Ethiopian Airlines to European cities rises to 60 per week..
