Ethiopian Airlines is to add a fourth weekly service from Manchester to Addis Ababa Bole International Airport in Ethiopia’s capital from October 30 – but the airline will introduce a stop in Switzerland.
Flights will operate on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday and the launch of the extra flight will operate via Geneva.
Passengers flying across Ethiopian’s Africa network will remain on-board the aircraft before continuing onwards to Addis Ababa where connections await to over 62 destinations across Africa.
Ethiopian Airlines will utilize a Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the route.
Commenting on the new service, Country Manager UK, Michael Yohannes said; “We are excited to announce this new route development. Whilst this new service will provide business and leisure travellers, including the traditional Winter Ski market, based in the region a convenient schedule it also underlines our commitment to provide further connectivity options into the African continent.”
