Ethiopian Airlines, the new spirit of Africa, in partnership with ASKY Airlines have recently announced new direct link flights routes from Gauteng’s O.R Tambo International Airport to various African destinations. The official launch will be on Saturday, 15 June 2019.
This is yet another strategy aimed at enhancing Ethiopian Airlines route network with ASKY Airlines. The carrier service, founded on the initiative of West African governments and a strategic partnership of Ethiopian Airlines will be providing a direct service through Johannesburg to cities such as Libreville in Gabon, Duala in Cameroon, Lagos in Nigeria and Lomé in Togo.
These new routes will cater for a spectrum of travellers including business and corporate travellers. Previously, travellers had to connect through Addis Ababa in order to reach their destinations. With the announcement of these new routes, traveling has been made easier to some of Africa’s favourite destinations, providing the shortest travel time on a non-stop basis between the two points.
“We always seek to find efficient travelling methods to connect people with different parts of the world. The launching of these new routes will minimize travel time and ensure that our customers always arrive safely to their destinations. An opportunity of this magnitude is truly exciting, and we look forward to many more successful opportunities such as this,” concludes Abel Alemu, Ethiopian Airlines’ Southern African Regional Manager.”
