Ethiopian Airlines Group, the fastest-growing global airline brand and the
continent’s largest airline, has announced that it will increase its weekly passenger
flights to Seoul, Republic of Korea, to six, effective October 28, 2023.
Ethiopian will also deploy the latest Airbus A350-900 aircraft on the route. The
increase in the frequency follows fruitful discussions between the aeronautical
authorities of Korea and Ethiopia. The additional flights are evidence of the two
countries expanding socio-economic relations and the growing multi-faceted
partnership between Korea and the whole continent of Africa.
Regarding the flight enhancement, Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mr. Mesfin
Tasew said: “Ethiopian is the only African carrier connecting Seoul to the
continent and beyond, and the additional frequencies will be significant in
fostering economic, cultural, and social interactions providing more diverse and
convenient connectivity options to travellers. As a pan-African carrier, it gives us
pleasure to give additional flight options between Addis Ababa, the diplomatic
capital of Africa, and Seoul, the rising hub of East Asia.
We are especially thrilled by the opportunity to serve our esteemed passengers
with the latest Airbus A350-900 modern aircraft. I take this occasion to sincerely
express my gratitude to the Government of the Republic of Korea for supporting
Ethiopian in enhancing its flight frequencies.”
