Ethiopian Starts Cargo Flights to Bangkok, Hanoi


Addis Ababa  August  23 /2019 Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services started a weekly freighter service to Bangkok, Thailand and Hanoi, Vietnam since last week.

Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO, Tewolde Gebremariam said “our new cargo service to Bangkok and Hanoi will supplement the daily belly hold cargo capacity on passenger aircraft.”

Tewolde added that “the commencement of the service will create better connectivity for cargo transport not just between Ethiopia, Thailand and Vietnam but also to over 60 destinations we serve in Africa.”

This makes Ethiopian the first African carrier to operate cargo flights from Bangkok, and will also create better opportunity for Thai and Vietnamese exporters to have a one-stop access to the 60 plus African destinations Ethiopian serves, he pointed out.

The freighter flight will also link Bangkok and Hanoi to Europe, Asia, Middle East and the Americas, it was indicated.

Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services facilitates the export of perishables, garments, mining products, and the import of high value industrial products and inputs, pharmaceuticals, among others across its global network.
