Ethiopian Airlines Resumes Flights to Moscow After 27 Years

One of Africa’s leading Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines has resumed flights to Moscow after a gap of 27 years. The airline stopped flying to the Russian capital city due to the demise of the Soviet Union.

The executive director of the airline Tewolde Gebremariam, noted, "Moscow is a vital addition to our European service, a very important region. It's going to take our total number of weekly flights to European destinations to reach 54 passenger flights a week,"

Ethiopian will henceforth fly three times a week to Moscow. Expressing his delight by Ethiopian Airlines' bold decision to resume flights on the route, Russia's ambassador to Ethiopia, Vsevolod I. Tkachenko said, "it will not only provide passenger flow, but also connect Russians with Ethiopian Airlines air services' global network."

Ethiopian is currently implementing a 15-year strategic plan called Vision 2025 that will see it become the leading aviation group in Africa. Ethiopian is a multi-award winning airline registering an average growth of 25% in the past seven years.
