Ethiopian Airlines, one of Africa’s leading airlines, has announced the resumption of its flight to Mogadishu, Somalia, effective 2 November 2018. This came 41 years after Ethiopian Airlines Group stopped its route to Mogadishu in the 1970s.

According to Mr Tewolde Gebremariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, “It gives us a great pleasure to resume flights to Mogadishu, the capital Somalia after stopping the service over four decades ago. I wish to express my gratitude to the Governments of Ethiopia and Somalia for making the resumption of these flights possible.

The flights will play a significant role in strengthening the people-to-people and economic ties between the two neighbourly and sisterly countries. The flights will also enable the important Somali Diaspora in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Europe and Africa to travel to their homeland via Addis Ababa thanks to our global network of over 116 international destinations.

Our flights will quickly grow to multiple daily flights given the huge volume of traffic between the two sisterly countries and the significant traffic between Somalia and the rest of the world.”
