According to the national carrier, the Boeing 767-300 aircraft, which will serve the route on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, comprises 24 business class seats and 211 seats in the economy class.

Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said, “Singapore is one of the major global aviation hubs and a preferred gateway to Asia and Australia. Our flights to Singapore will strengthen trade, investment and tourism ties between a booming Africa and a highly developed, innovative and business-friendly Singapore.”

Passengers of Ethiopian Airlines will be able to get connecting flights from Singapore to destinations like Sydney and Melbourne in Australia, along with links to other major cities in the African continent, the airline said.

The carrier will be the first East African airline to start operating flights to Singapore.

Earlier this year, the carrier was named the ‘Best Airline in Africa’ in the region’s Passenger Choice Awards and also received the ‘Best Staff Service in Africa’ title in the Skytrax World Airline Awards.
