Next summer (July 2nd), Ethiopian Airlines will open a service to Marseille, its second destination in France. it will add a fourth weekly rotation to Switzerland. The national airline will offer three flights a week via Milan on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday with a 787-9.
Is it the first ever 789 at MRS???
There are big of Comorian and Malagasy diasporas in town and around but not sure the demand justifies flight on its own. Was not there a link to MRS to HAH a few years ago?

Marseille is jokingly known as “the biggest city in Comoros” with an estimated diaspora of over 120K Comorians. Demand is there. In fact almost 100% of passengers on board ill fated Yemenia Flight 626 from Sana’a to Moroni we’re connecting passengers from Marseille.
Same goes for the Malagasy diaspora which is in fact the biggest subsaharian diaspora in France. Little people know that since it is an “invisible” diaspora due to the fact that Madagascar is an ethnically and racially very diverse country and that contrary to most other diasporas they are “diluted” all over France (and I should know I’m 1/2 Malagasy and like most of my family, you could never tell by my skin colour).
Merci beaucoup, je n'étais pas sûr des chiffres exacts, mais grâce à tes précisions, cela semble justifier un vol d'ET à MRS.
You guys, from the Red Island, are lucky enough, to be confused with southern Spaniard or Ritals (Italians
) when spring is coming here - In south of France!
When will AF remove the COI cabins to TNR?
