Ethiopian Airlines returns to Kano, its 3rd destination in Nigeria
Since the second quarter of 2020, Ethiopian Airlines has reconnected with almost all of its African network. In its most important markets such as Nigeria, the Ethiopian national carrier is working to recover its pre-pandemic traffic volumes.
Ethiopian Airlines (ETH) relaunched its Addis Ababa - Kano route (passenger flight) on Tuesday, April 6. The Ethiopian national carrier offers 2 weekly flights (Tuesday and Saturday) between the capital of Ethiopia and the second most populous city in Nigeria, located in the north of the country.
Flights are bering operated by Boeing 737-800. In Nigeria, ETH had already resumed its daily connections to Lagos and Abuja.
The resumption of flights to Kano comes as Ethiopian Airlines comes out of three months of exceptional punctuality.
On April 4, the company announced that it had achieved a 91% punctuality rate on all departures of its flights around the world in the past three months. This is more than the global airline industry average of around 85%. Concretely, 91% of the 18,385 flights made by the public pavilion in January, February and March, took off at the latest within 15 minutes of the scheduled time. “As a customer-centric airline, we are making a substantial investment in improving our customer service. When customers choose Ethiopian, we make sure they get the best possible experience with us, including getting to their destination on time. The past three months have been extraordinarily productive in terms of efficiency in our flight operations. I am proud of my colleagues who are committed to eliminating any inconvenience for our esteemed passengers,”says Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO of the leading African air carrier.
