Ethiopian now services Bengaluru
Ethiopian Airlines, the fast growing airline in Africa, has started freighter flights to Bengaluru, the fourth destination in India, in addition to Mumbai, New Delhi and Chennai.
Bengaluru is an important sector since it is a hub of IT and biotech sectors and is showing growth
with over 2,000 hi-tech companies
Bengaluru is home to more than 2,000 hi-tech companies and is seeing a high growth in biotech, healthcare and construction industries. Fitsum Abady, MD, Ethiopian Cargo said “Ethiopian is growing fast with cargo, a key part of its offering. Our Vision 2025 strategy covers global growth, but our focus is comparatively more to and from Asia, both in terms of frequency and in number of cargo potential origins to Africa.”
He added, “Ethiopian Airlines has placed itself at the centre of the crucial China-India-Africa trade lane helping robust growth of cargo operation.”
Tadesse Tilahun, Regional Director, India Sub Continent, said, “Bengaluru is an important sector for us since it is a hub of IT and biotech sectors apart from housing various MNC set ups.”
