Ethiopian launches to Toronto
Ethiopian Airlines inaugurated a new service linking its home base of Addis Ababa with the Canadian city of Toronto last week.
The first direct connection between Toronto and Africa, Ethiopian is operating a B777-200LR on the route.
Currently operated on a twice-weekly frequency, the airline has already said that it hopes to add further flights “once the bilateral agreement between the two countries is enhanced.
“We have long envisioned Canada as an integral part of our growing network,” Tewolde Gebremariam, the carrier’s CEO, added.
“Canada is home to a thriving business community and a large African diaspora. Our flight to Canada will play an instrumental role in serving both communities and in enhancing trade and economic ties between Africa and Canada.”
Ethiopian is expecting to launch services to five new destinations this year, including São Paulo.
