Ethiopian Airlines ups frequency to Oslo
Ethiopian Airlines has firmly established itself at Norway’s main airport
Oct 19, 2018: Since the launch of Oslo flights on March 27, 2018, Ethiopian Airlines has firmly established itself at Norway’s main airport. It will now increase the frequency between Addis Ababa and Avinor Oslo Airport to six flights a week using a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner from December 11, 2018.
“We have developed a very close partnership with Ethiopian Airlines, and have worked hard with them to make this route a success story. This is proof that our cooperation has worked well, and that Ethiopian has succeeded in developing a good portfolio of business, holiday and leisure passengers. The segment for passengers visiting friends and family has also been a hit on this route,” said Jasper Spruit, VP Traffic Development at Avinor.
Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines Tewolde GebreMariam remarked, “The Oslo route has proven to be a success within just one year of its launch. It will soon become daily and we plan to add new services to Oslo from Asmara in December 2018. Through these flights, we are serving the growing travel need between Africa and Northern Europe. In addition to the passenger flights, we have started a fully dedicated freighter operation from Oslo to Guangzhou in China on October 11, 2018, facilitating the export of Norwegian seafood to the Asian market.”
The airline is very much looking forward to getting the new cargo route off the ground. It will make a major contribution to the export of fresh Norwegian seafood to the ever-growing Asian market.
