Ethiopian Airlines Begins Freighter Services to Casablanca, Morocco

ADDIS ABABA – Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services has commenced a freighter service to Casablanca, Morocco as of today, January 09, 2024.

The new freighter service increases the carrier’s total African freighter destinations.

“We’re excited to announce the launch of the freighter services to Casablanca,” said Mesfin Tasew, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group.

The airline operates freighter service to Casablanca using Boeing 777-200F cargo aircraft with a payload capacity of more than 100 tons.

“The new service opens a new chapter as it is our maiden venture into the Maghreb region as part of our global freighter network,” the CEO said. It also “boosts our commitment to delivering reliable and efficient services.”

Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services – one of the major business units of the Group, currently covers more than 135 destinations globally with both belly-hold capacity and 68 dedicated freighter services.

“As the largest cargo network operator in Africa and a key air cargo service provider globally, Ethiopian Airlines will continue expanding its services around the world by opening new routes to facilitate global trade and the flow of goods,” Mesfin said.

Ethiopian, which runs a modern warehouse facility with 1.15mln tons of storage capacity, just completed the construction of an ultramodern e-commerce warehouse at its hub. The new facility has a capacity of 150,000 tons, which is dedicated to mail, couriers, and e-commerce goods.

These fully automated facilities are equipped with advanced transfer vehicles and sorting technologies to provide a temperature-controlled environment for dry, perishable, and pharmaceutical shipments, the airlines says.
