Ethiopian commences service to Singapore

Ethiopian Airlines confirmed (05-Dec-2013) the commencement of a new service to Singapore. Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said: “Singapore is a major and preferred gateway to Asia and Australia. That is why we have decided to make Singapore our main strategic point of access to the Oceania market and its huge Ethiopian/African Diaspora Community by availing excellent connectivity options through our codeshare agreement with fellow Star Alliance member, Singapore Airlines. Our flights to Singapore will also greatly contribute to the strengthening of trade, investment, and tourism ties between a booming Africa and a highly developed, innovative, and business-friendly Singapore.” Ethiopian will be the first East African carrier to start services to Singapore, which will become the airline’s 78th international destination.[more - original PR]
