Ethiopian to launch flights to Marseille, France July 2

ETHIOPIAN Airlines, has announced that it has finalized all preparations to launch a thrice weekly flight to Marseille, France as of July 02, 2019. Marseille is the second-largest city of France and main city of the historical province.

Regarding the upcoming services, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, remarked, “It gives us great pleasure to launch flights to Marseille, connecting France’s second largest city to the over 60 African destinations we serve, through our hub Addis Ababa.

“We’ve been flying to Paris since 1971, more than 48 years, so we are not new to the market in France. But we are very happy to expand our services closer to the customer in Marseille now. The connectivity we are establishing between Europe and Africa is facilitating trade, investment, tourism and people-to-people ties.

” As we forge ahead on the path of growth and success as envisioned in Vision 2025, we will keep on opening new routes to all corners of the world bringing Africa ever closer to the rest of the world.”

Marseille marks Ethiopian’s 20th destination in Europe. Ethiopian is currently serving 120 international destinations across five continents with young aircraft with average fleet age of five years. It will also bring the number of passenger flights the airline operates to European cities to 61 per week.
