Ethiopian Airlines announced that it has finalized all preparations to launch a thrice-weekly flight to Marseille as of July 02, 2019.
Marseille is the second-largest city of France and the main city of the historical province.
Regarding the upcoming services, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, Ethiopian Airline Group CEO, said:
“It gives us great pleasure to launch flights to Marseille, connectingFrance’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.
“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.
“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.”
