Ethiopian Airlines, Africa’s airline, is set to start thrice-weekly operations to Chennai, India effective July 2, 2022.
Chennai will join the airline’s network as a fourth destination in India after New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. The flights to Chennai will be operated using B737-8 aircraft.
“We have been connecting Asia and Africa for 55 years now facilitating trade between the two continents. We will continue to serve India with enhanced frequency and more destinations in the future,“ Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mesfin Tasew said.
Chennai is a modern cosmopolitan city and the most prominent cultural, economic and educational centre of South India. The airline currently flies to three passenger and five cargo destinations in India with its enhanced services and modern fleet.
Besides the opening of a new route to Chennai, Ethiopian Airlines’ flight frequency to the cities of Mumbai and New Delhi will increase to double daily and ten weekly flights, respectively, as of July 2022.
