The Skies in Eritrea will open to Ethiopian Airlines flights after the two countries melted the ice that had kept their relations frozen for over two decades.
“Artists, prepare yourselves since we will celebrate the (Ethiopian) New Year (on September 11) in both Asmara and Addis Ababa,” Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said after talks with an Eritrean delegation.
“For Ethiopians who have longed for heading to Massawa (in Eritrea) for a stroll, I call on you to be ready as Ethiopian Airlines will start services there soon,” the dynamic premier said.
Ethiopian Airlines is the most profitable and largest airline in Africa by revenue. It is also now one of the fastest growing airlines in the world and it will receive its 100th aircraft this month.
