Via Algerian Airlines, at a rate of two flights per week, which raises the number of flights to African destinations to 23 per week.
On Thursday, the Algerian government announced the launch of a direct flight between Algeria and the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, with two flights per week, which raises the number of flights to African destinations to 23 per week.
Algeria transport minister Youssef Sharfa supervised the launching ceremony of the first direct flight between Algeria and Addis Ababa, in the presence of the Ethiopian Ambassador to Algeria, Nebiat Getachew Asgeed.
Minister Charfa stressed, in a speech he delivered on the occasion, “the importance of this direct flight, which falls within the path of developing the air transport plan of the Algerian airline and expanding its network.”
He pointed out that the plan falls within the framework of implementing the instructions of Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, “aiming at openness to African countries.”
Sharfa revealed that the new line operates at a rate of two flights per week between Algiers and Addis Ababa, bringing the number of flights to African destinations to 23 flights per week (for Algerian Airlines alone).
He stated that “the efforts of the transport sector fall within the scope of the strategy that made it possible to make Algiers International Airport a hub airport and a transit gateway to Africa and the world.”
Addis Ababa is considered the second major African city linked by a direct airline with Algeria, after Johannesburg, South Africa, which opened its route on August 21, on the eve of the BRICS summit
