Ethiopian Airlines plans Beijing as East Asian hub

20-Aug-2010 10:34 AM

Ethiopian Airlines stated Beijing is scheduled to become the East Asian hub for the carrier, as it takes advantage of fast development in trade between China and Africa (Nazret, 19-Aug-2010). The carrier commented that, in the peak season, load factors often exceed 90% on Africa-China services. The carrier added that it hopes to launch services to Shanghai or Hangzhou in the near future, in addition to its existing Addis Ababa-Beijing service.
