Ethiopian Airlines has finalised preparations to resume daily flights to Asmara, Eritrea on July 17, 2018 with a Boeing 787. This follows agreements reached in Asmara between H.E.

“We at Ethiopian feel an immense honor and joy to resume scheduled flights to Asmara after 20 years, following the visit to Eritrea by H.E. Dr. Abiy Ahmed, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia,” said Group CEO, Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam said. “With the opening of a new chapter of peace and friendship between the two sisterly countries, we look forward to starting flights to Asmara with the B787, the most technologically advanced commercial aircraft, which gives customers unparalleled on-board comfort.

“The resumption of air links will play a critical role in boosting the overall political, economic, trade and people-to-people ties between the two sisterly countries.

“Very quickly, we plan to operate multiple daily service and to start cargo flights in view of the huge market potential between the two sisterly countries,” he said.
