Ethiopian Airlines announced that it has extended free transit tour to global passengers from early this year (February 2019).
The new complimentary city tour package organised by ET Holidays, the tour operator wing of Ethiopian Airlines, takes transiting passengers with 6 to 8 hours’ time in the running capital, Addis Ababa.
This journey through one of the landmarks of the city – The National Museum, accompanied with a taste of Ethiopian Coffee and souvenir shopping at affordable prices offers an experience of the unique flavours of the political capital of Africa during their brief stay.
Regarding the initiative, Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO, Ethiopian Airlines, remarked, “As travel has gone digital with our innovative technology solutions including Ethiopian Mobile App and online platforms, the huge influx of transit passengers in Addis Ababa, the world’s gateway to Africa, can enjoy the personalised and end-to-end travel experience. Ethiopian Mobile App enables passengers to secure their visa electronically within 4 hours from any part of the world, as well as book their flights, pay online using credit or debit cards, mobile money, e-Wallet and bank transfer, check-in and issue boarding pass seamlessly.”
Besides, Ethiopian Airlines has finalised all preparations to launch a thrice-weekly flight to Marseille, France as of July 02, 2019. Marseille is the second-largest city of France and the main city of the historical province.
