The connectivity being established between Europe and Africa, is to facilitate trade, investment, tourism and people-to-people, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam has stated.
“It gives us great pleasure to launch flights to Marseille, connecting France’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. But we are very happy to expand our services closer to the customer in Marseille now.
“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,”GebreMariam added.
