Maun to Become Ethiopian’s Second Botswana Destination

ADDIS ABABA – Ethiopian Airlines Group, says it will launch a thrice weekly service between Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and Maun, Botswana as of June 10, 2024.

Maun will be Ethiopian Airlines’s second destination in Botswana after Gaborone, which has been served since 2016.

“We are delighted to include Maun, the tourism capital of Botswana, in our ever-expanding African network,” Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mesfin Tasew said.

Maun is the gateway to the Okavango Delta – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s largest inland deltas.

The CEO said the addition of the flight destination into the Ethiopian Airline’s African flight network would “enable travelers from Maun to enjoy facilitated connectivity to Ethiopian vast global network that exceeds 135 destinations.”

“Our new service does not only strengthen the tourism, trade and the overall socio-economic ties between Botswana and Ethiopian global destinations, it also enables us to strengthen our contribution in realizing the development of air transport in the African continent,” Mesfin said.

Ethiopian Airlines managed to establish convenient intra-Africa and global connections via its main hub in Addis Ababa, playing its part in the growth of the aviation industry in Africa.

The carrier operates the largest African flight network serving more than 60 destinations in the continent.
