Ethiopian Airlines plans to launch its third destination in India with the launch of services to Chennai.
Press Trust of India quoted Tewolde Gebremariam, the Ethiopian Airlines CEO, as saying that the airline is currently in talks with India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and other civil aviation authorities. The airline currently operates daily flights from Addis Ababa to Delhi and Mumbai.
Last year, India and Ethiopia had signed a pact to allow the national carriers of both countries to increase weekly flight entitlements from 21 to 28. In addition, both the countries are part of a 27-member international alliance club and they share code-sharing pacts as well.
