Ethiopian Airlines, the fastest growing airline in Africa, is pleased to announce the commencement of new services to Enugu, Nigeria as of August 24, 2013 becoming the first international carrier to fly to the city. Ethiopian will also increase its five weekly flights to Abuja to daily service.

Ethiopian will operate four times a week to Enugu, its 76th destination. Ethiopian, an indigenous and truly Pan African airline, is one of the oldest carriers flying to Nigeria and has been serving the country since 1960 strengthening trade, cultural and tourism ties between Nigeria and the rest of the world.

Now, passengers from Enugu will have direct flight connections to many destinations in Africa, Middle East, Asia, South America and Europe with the youngest and modern fleet in the continent and enjoy the usual Ethiopian hospitality.

About Ethiopian

Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) is the fastest growing Airline in Africa. In its operations in the past close to seven decades, Ethiopian has become one of the continent’s leading carriers, unrivalled in efficiency and operational success.

Ethiopian commands the lion share of the pan-African passenger and cargo network operating the youngest and most modern fleet to more than 75 international destinations across five continents. Ethiopian fleet includes ultra-modern and environmentally friendly aircraft such as the Boeing 787, Boeing 777-200LR, Boeing 777-200LR Freighter and Bombardier Q-400 with double cabin. In fact, Ethiopian is the first airline in Africa to own and operate these aircraft.

Ethiopian is currently implementing a 15-year strategic plan called Vision 2025 that will see it become the leading aviation group in Africa with seven business centers: Ethiopian Domestic and Regional Airline; Ethiopian International Passenger Airline; Ethiopian Cargo; Ethiopian MRO; Ethiopian Aviation Academy; Ethiopian In-flight Catering Services; and Ethiopian Ground Service.

Ethiopian is a multi-award winning airline and a member of Star Alliance since 2011 registering an average growth of 25% in the past seven years.
"Our flight to Enugu is another exciting step towards enhancing our commitment to the needs of our travelling publics. Nigeria has always been and continues to be one of our important destinations in West Africa. We are continually improving our products and services to meet our customers’ expectations. We thank the people and the government of Nigeria for their continued support in making this new service to Enugu possible," said Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian.

Passengers from our three gateways in Nigeria – Lagos, Abuja and Enugu – now have the opportunity to fly to destinations throughout the Ethiopian network, including Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Seoul, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, London, Toronto, Beijing, Beirut, Dubai, Mumbai, and Nairobi.

Sir, How can i fly with Ethiopian airline from New York,USA to Enugu, Nigeria. Would i need to make a stop over in Addis or is there a direct flight.

[Mr. Agbai, my guess would be JFK-IAD fly United or any Star Alliance carrier and then non stop from IAD to ADD aboard Ethiopian Airlines and a non-stop flight from ADD-ENU (Operates as Flight 931) Duration from Addis to Enugu is 4 hours and 30 min. Yes, you would need to make a stop over in Addis ]
