ADDIS ABABA – Ethiopian Airlines is set to resume its passenger flight services to Spain’s capital Madrid for the first time since 2020.
The Ethiopian Airlines Group announced today that the four weekly passenger services to Madrid will start from Dec 9, 2023.
The national flag carrier will deploy the Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner to operate the flight services on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.
“We are delighted to reinstate our Madrid flights,” Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mesfin Tasew said announcing the resumption of the flight.
The CEO expects the new services to be vital in linking Africa with Spain’s arts and financial center creating a critical link to the socio-economic relationships between Madrid and more than 60 African cities where Ethiopian Airlines flies to.
“Once again, we are glad to offer this connection between the two regions,” Mesfin said.
Ethiopian Airlines suspended its Madrid flights back in 2020 due to the pandemic.
“Now we are back even stronger to provide our renowned award-winning services to/from the Spanish capital,” Mesfin said. “Our services to Madrid will be operated by the modern Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft that furnishes ultra-comfort to our esteemed customers.”
Ethiopian Airlines offers a seamless connection to both leisure and business travelers onboard its more than 140 fleet to its more than 150 passenger and cargo international and domestic destinations.
Apart from its flight resumption to Madrid, Ethiopian says it will start new services to Gatwick London and Bangui Central Africa in November while many more new destinations are in the pipeline.
