Ethiopian Airlines finally returns to Madrid

Ethiopian Airlines served Madrid again from Addis Ababa-Bole after a break that lasted four years due to covid-19.

From now on, the Ethiopian company flies to Madrid-Barajas Alfunso Suarez airport four times a week knowing that its route includes a stopover at Rome – Fiumicino.

To serve this long-haul flight, the Ethiopian carrier operates its Boeing 787-9 configured to accommodate 305 passengers in two cabins, including 30 in Business class.

Ethiopian Airlines can therefore guarantee its passengers 2,520 seats each week on this triangular route.
