Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO, Mr. Tewolde Gebremariam, remarked: “The high and sustained economic growth Ethiopia is registering is spurring an unprecedented increase in international and domestic travel to the country. As the national carrier, it is our duty to support the country’s development by availing essential and convenient air connectivity to the four corners of Ethiopia. With a view to meet this growing travel need, we are continually upgrading the domestic airport infrastructure, expanding our domestic network which now covers 20 points in all the regional states of the country, and increasing frequencies to domestic destinations.  

The new night services to Axum and Gondar will provide more convenient and flexible options to our esteemed customers, whether they are traveling for business or leisure, by increasing connectivity between the two regional cities; by availing more convenient flight options from and to these two cities, making it possible to travel in the morning and return to the city of origin within the same day; and by enabling increased tourism flow into these two historical cities.” 

Ethiopian currently covers 20 domestic points, the largest domestic network in Africa. Night flights are available to Bahir Dar, Dire Dawa, Mekelle, and now to Axum and Gondar.
