Ethiopian New Dests & West African Hub

Mon Oct 30, 2006 8:52 pm

"Ethiopian Airlines is considering setting up a hub in Togo 's capital Lome , after talks with Ghana failed. The airline is still interested in Libreville Gabon for its West Africa hub but does not seem completely satisfied as it is seeking at Lome as well specially for its Europe and North America flights"

"Ethiopian has also plans to increase its destinations from 46 to 50 this fiscal year introducing flights to Monrovia , Zanzibar , Juba and Bahrain . "

"In its plan to become more international in scope, it has also implemented a world class brand that reflects Africanness.

Tewolde G. Mariam told Capital that the new look would include the offices, interior design of the planes, employee uniforms and the in-flight films. "

Great notices!!!! At last!!!!

If I ever see in the timetables an ET flight from anywhere in Africa to Monrovia I will take it.

My experiences with Slok Air (a very dirty and old 732) and with Bellview Airlines (a pair of oldest 732's) are very bad and I have had enough for all the rest of my life.

Any chance to see 752 or next generation 737's operating to Liberia?

I doubt the 73G will make it that far. Probably a mixture of 767's and the 752.
