Ethiopian Airlines returns to Singapore

SINGAPORE, 19 December 2022: Ethiopian Airlines will resume direct services to Singapore from Adis Ababa on 25 March 2023 using a Boeing 787 for the four weekly flights.

Ethiopian Group CEO Mesfin Tasew confirmed last week the airline was resuming its Singapore service that was suspended in March 2020 at the height of the COVID pandemic.

The flight will improve connectivity for passengers travelling from Southeast Asia to Africa through the Singapore hub.

Commenting on the news, Changi Airport Group managing director of Air Hub Development Lim Ching Kiat said: “We are thrilled to welcome Ethiopian Airlines to Changi Airport again. Ethiopian Airlines has been consistently voted as the Best Airline in Africa, and the network from its Addis Ababa hub is connected with more than 63 destinations on the African continent.

“This flight between Singapore and Ethiopia will offer more travel options for passengers from our region to visit Africa. For many Singaporeans, Ethiopia could also be an exciting new vacation destination as it boasts many attractions ranging from historical sites such as Axum to breathtaking natural geography such as the Simien Mountains and Blue Nile falls.”

Singapore’s Changi airport is one of the major global aviation hubs with the latest airport infrastructure and one of the best hub transfer services. Singapore is also one of the major financial hubs in the world.
