Starting from December 9, 2023, Africa’s largest airline Ethiopian Airlines will resume passenger service to Spain’s capital city, Madrid. The four-weekly service will be operated via Rome on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
Regarding the resumption of the flight, Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mr. Mesfin Tasew said, “We are delighted to reinstate our Madrid flights. The new services will continue to be vital in linking Africa with Spain’s arts and financial center creating critical link to the socio-economic relationships between Madrid and more than 60 African cities where Ethiopian Airlines flies to. Once again, we are glad to offer this connection between the two regions. Ethiopian Airlines suspended its Madrid flights back in 2020 due to the pandemic; now we are back even stronger to provide our renowned award-winning services to/from the Spanish capital. Our services to Madrid will be operated by the modern Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft that furnishes ultra-comfort to our esteemed customers.”
Ethiopian Airlines offers a seamless connection to both leisure and business travelers onboard its more than 140 young and modern fleet to its more than 150 passenger and cargo international and domestic destinations. Apart from its flight resumption to Madrid, Ethiopian will start new services to Gatwick London and Bangui Central Africa in November while many more new destinations are in the pipeline.
