The Ethiopian Airlines will start flight services to Jakarta, Indonesia, in June 2017 using the ultra-modern Boeing 787-800.
Jakarta is Indonesia’s economic, cultural and political center, and Indonesia is the 4th most populous country in the world, and with this new service Ethiopian will have service to all 5 of the most populous countries on earth, said a statement from the airline.
With regard to the new service, Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said Ethiopian Airlines is working very hard to connect Africa with the major trading centers of the world.
“As the fastest growing airline in Africa, Ethiopian is pleased to offer the opportunity to business people as well as tourists to explore Jakarta’s potential both for investment and leisure,” noted the CEO.
“This move will further increase our presence in Asia, connecting Africa to the Asia region and in turn strengthening the tourism and trade ties between the peoples of Africa and Asia,” he said.
