Ethiopian Airlines launches Oslo-Guangzhou freighter service
Oct 22, 2018: Ethiopian Airlines will be increasing flights frequencies between Addis Ababa and Avinor Oslo Airport from December 11. The route will be operated six times a week using Ethiopian’s Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
Since the launch on March 27, 2017, Ethiopian Airlines has firmly established itself at Norway’s main airport.
“This is a 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,” says Jasper Spruit, vice president Traffic Development at Avinor.
“This will provide us with a further 25,000 seats annually on our longhaul network,” says Jasper Spruit, vice president Traffic Development at Avinor.
Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO, Ethiopian Airlines said: “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. Thru these flights, we are serving the growing travel need between Africa and Northern Europe.”
“Ethiopian has really made its mark on Oslo Airport since launching last year, and its membership of Star Alliance is an important factor in passengers securing an effective way of travelling between Norway and Africa,” says Spruit.
In addition to this, the Addis-Ababa based carrier also launched a fully dedicated freighter service twice weekly from Oslo to Guangzhou in China on October 11, 2018, facilitating the export of Norwegian seafood to the Asian market.
“It will make a major contribution to the export of fresh Norwegian seafood to the ever-growing Asian market,” Spruit concludes.
