Ethiopian launches freighter flights from Bahir Dar to Liege

Ethiopian Cargo has launched freighter flights from Bahir Dar to Liege, carrying 45 tons of flowers on the inaugural service on 24 January.

The airline’s Group chief executive officer, Tewolde Gebremariam says the route is an important milestone in Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services’ history, offering direct freighter services dedicated to flowers with the aim of delivering produce in a fresh and timely manner.

With daily freighters to Liege and Brussels, Ethiopian transports a total of 130 tons of flowers a week.

He says: “Today’s milestone is a showcase that Ethiopian will also launch similar services from other flower producing regional states. Ethiopia being rich with abundant fertile land, it can reach to the global market with its fresh and quality flowers among other agricultural produces.

“We shall continue to support the export sector and the national economy with our convenient global cargo and passenger services.”
