Ethiopian Airlines eyes more route launches in India

ADDIS ABABA: Indian tourists will soon have direct flights from several Indian metros and tier-two cities to tourist hotspots in Africa, with the Ethiopian Airlines planning to operate regular flights from these places.

Already operating daily flights from New Delhi and Mumbai, the Ethiopian Airlines is all set to deploy its newly acquired luxurious Boeing-787 Dreamliner from India's financial capital to attract business and leisure travellers.

"So far it (the plans for the new routes) is for Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata. Cochin, Trivandrum and Hyderabad are also interesting destinations for the Ethiopian Airlines...

As much as ETHIOPIAN is penetrating deep in the Indian market, I am surprised AIR INDIA the country’s flag carries didn’t even attempted to fly to Addis.
Either ETHIOPIAN is too strong to compete against in this route or AIR India is too weak to venture in a new African market or a combination of two.
