The new schedule from Addis Ababa to Oslo starts on 11 December and Ethiopian will utilise a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

Ethiopian Airlines Group chief executive officer, Tewolde GebreMariam said: “We are pleased to witness the success of our flight from Addis Ababa to Oslo, which has now increased to six flights per week. 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.”

Avinor senior director traffic development, Majid Khan added: “With announcement of Asmara as a second destination from Oslo Airport with Africa’s largest airline, the total of eight weekly frequencies will add even better connectivity for Norwegian business and leisure travelers to Africa. We are looking forward to further develop a great cooperation with Ethiopian Airlines.”
