Ethiopian Airlines to Increase Flights to Mumbai to Double Daily

Did you know that the Ethiopian Airlines is one of the Safest Airlines in the world? It has a safety record that not many airlines could match up to.

Ethiopia seems to be an impoverished country surrounded by rugged terrain. Yet the record of its national carrier, Ethiopian Airlines, over seven decades of operation are only three fatal events, one of them a hijacking—is exceptional. Ethiopian Airlines is one of the proudest, and arguably one of the safest airlines in the world.

Ethiopian Airlines has finalised preparations to start double-daily flights to Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport from next month. The airline has been providing air service to Mumbai for over 43 years. It currently operates daily flights to Mumbai and New Delhi.

Both daily flights to Mumbai will be operated with the B787 Dreamliner aircraft. With the double-daily flights, Ethiopian aims to provide optimal connectivity options for passengers traveling between India and its other destinaions.

Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group, said, “We are very bullish on the prospects of the Africa-India market. By increasing our frequency to double daily to Mumbai and expanding our code-share agreement with Air India Ltd., fellow Star Alliance partner, with the inclusion of domestic points in India and major destinations in Africa, we aim to become the airline of choice for travel between Africa and India by offering seamless and convenient connections through our main hub in Addis Ababa. Going forward, we plan to increase our current frequency to New Delhi and start operations to additional destinations in Southern India.”
