Ethiopian increases capacity into Spain with new Barcelona belly link

Ethiopian Airline has finalised preparations to launch a belly route to Barcelona from 1 July this year utilising a Boeing 787–800 Dreamliner – and its 13th connection into Europe from Addis Ababa.

The four time a week belly link is the fast expanding African carrier’s second service to Spain as it already has capacity into Madrid.

Ethiopian Airlines Group chief executive officer, Tewolde GebreMariam said: “The start of this new flight to Barcelona is part of our global route network expansion plan in line with our strategic roadmap, Vision 2025.

“The new flight to Barcelona will provide seamless connectivity options for business people as well as tourists from Barcelona to our extensive African network of 58 destinations via our main hub in Addis Ababa.”
