Regional Director India Sub Continent Ethiopian Airlines, Mumbai
Finding a right balance between belly and freighter is a true answer for us. We have wide body passenger operation and the daily belly capacity helps in minimising dwell time and tap shipments
such as perishable and courier that require fast transfer. The freighter capacity will complement that by protecting huge shipments to our hub – Addis Ababa – that will be distributed to our entire network. Ethiopian is already operating freighter flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad and looking for increasing capacity on the existing routes. We are very keen to open new freighter destinations since we have witnessed good potential from India, and Hyderabad and Kolkata are in the offing.
