Nov 05, 2018: Eritrean Airlines will be adding a fourth weekly flight between Addis Ababa and Asmara from November 16, 2018 to meet the increasing traffic needs.

The airline already flying a Boeing B737 on the route on Monday, Thursday and Sunday will be adding a Tuesday service.

Ethiopian Airlines is presently flying double daily but will as of December add six more services between Addis and Asmara, then operating under fifth freedom rights to both London and Rome / Milan. When these flights commence the weekly services by Ethiopian to Asmara will rise to 20 and with four more flights operated by Eritrean the two capitals will see 24 weekly connections.

Eritrean Airlines will also add another domestic flight, connecting Asmara with the port city of Assab, with that service operating every Friday, effective also in December. This flight is thought to be largely aiming at connecting traffic from Addis Ababa after Ethiopia has begun to use the Eritrean ports once again for their imports and exports and where added connectivity is key to increase that business.
