Ethiopian is Preparing to Resume Regular Flights to Tigray, Lalibela

ADDIS ABABA – Ethiopian Airlines has begun preparations to resume regular flights to cities in Tigray and other northern parts of the country, its CEO said on Wednesday.

The preparation for the daily flights suspended due to conflict follows the signing peace agreement earlier this month to end the conflict in northern Ethiopia.



Speaking to ENA today, CEO Mesfin Tasew said the peace accord “will be of great importance” in accelerating access to humanitarian supplies beyond the reflight services that the airline has been providing.

In Tigray, Ethiopian Airlines will initially restart flights to two airports.

Mekele and Shire airports are in good condition and are convenient to resume flights, the airline’s CEO.

Axum Airport, which sustained damages in the conflict, needs to be renovated to make it accessible for flights, he explained.

“We will send our people to the area and repair the airport,” Meafin told ENA.

“In addition to the three airports, we are also working to resume service to other airports like Lalibela,” he added.

Ethiopian Airlines currently flies to more than 20 domestic destinations from its hub at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.
