Ethiopian Airlines, the largest cargo operator in Africa, has launched two new cargo routes to Milan and Zaragoza.
Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, Ethiopian Airline Group Chief Executive Officer, said:
“With the largest and most modern dedicated Freighter fleet and the largest Cargo Network connecting African countries with their major trading partners around the world, Ethiopian Cargo is contributing its own share in the fast and sustainable economic development of Africa. Airfreight plays a critical role in international trade and especially in the carriage of high-value goods, temperature controlled cargo like flowers, fruits and vegetables and pharmaceuticals.
“While we are on the eve of the inauguration of the first phase of our state of the art cargo terminal, the addition of these cargo routes, makes our global air Cargo service even more stretched to the world with adequate ground facilities and quality services. This move will further strengthen trade and commercial ties between Africa and Europe. I wish to thank all who made these new routes possible.”
Currently, Ethiopian is providing the European market with a minimum weekly capacity of 2,200 tonnes from Liege, deploying its modern fleet of Boeing 777 Freighter aircraft.
