KQs inaugural flight to FCO and GVA just landed in GVA.
Many thanks for the update, totally forgotten
.Really nice pics & video upon arriving from GVA available here:https://www.gva.ch/en/Site/Passagers/Pr ... ancement-d
stated, fingers crossed, it will last more than 5 years!
Ethiopia is not exactly the tourist destination like Kenya or Tanzania. It still has a long way to go to command large numbers.
Airports in Ethiopia other than ADD have no draw for airlines. Even ET dabbled with a Makale/Bahir Dar to Khartoum routing and it was quickly quashed. Dire Dawa to Djibouti is the only one that works.
Interesting facts, that I was unaware - thanks a lot Berari.
As yes indeed, not other airlines serve regional airport in Ethiopia. Why there are no incentive to increase competition with local operator on domestic/regional routes?
The only figures found for tourists visiting Ethiopia neared 900K / year, it can't be true, it must be more somehow
One lesson learned for Ethiopian is that small narrowbodies do not support its cargo and additional lift ambitions. This was true when they got the B73Ws, and the versatility of the B73s to date have allowed them to use the aircraft not only regionally but also to farther destinations in Africa and the Middle East.
For ET like DXB, LBV, DSS and LOS I presume?
Did their cargo destination map change or, now, they are also sending a dedicated freight a/c to some cities aforementioned (+ maybe more in ME/Africa)?
But that shouldn't be a problem since KQ might become state owned and get enough money from the state to buy larger aircraft.
Not sure if it's a good news though
When is the TC DAR-JNB starting? And are they still going to use the 787?
Well, according to my current PNR, valid for the 28th of June ( kind of inaugural flight
) it still remains ok as shown below:
However, I truly hope that you are not a snakebit....
KQ's 9th dreamliner is back in NBO. The aircraft operated as A40-SZ for Oman Air. This means that KQ has it's entire 787 fleet back in operation. Should be reg number 5Y-KZJ.
The best timing for this move, especially for the summer season
Any special name planned for her? I would suggest for her "Malaika", what about you ?
A very good twitter attitude, as some Northern Emisphere people would have rushed straight away to claim:"KQ sucks"
, "our holidays were ruined in 10 min", "Kenya Airways... meh... never again "
and the likes you bet
Fly with Air Burundi, Air Tanzania, Golden Wings Aviation, Kenya Airways, RwandAir and Uganda Airlines...Jumuiya ya Afrika mashariki !
