After nearly six months of suspension, Ethiopian Airlines has resumed flights to Lalibela, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The airport has been rebuilt and is now open to passengers.
The tourist destination generates millions of dollars in foreign exchange every year. Following the recent unrest, Ethiopian Airlines has resumed flights to the town of Lalibela. It will resume daily flights to the historic site, encouraging travelers to book a ticket in advance.
The city is a popular tourist destination and its rock-hewn churches, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are a must-see. The flight schedule will likely increase as the airport is rebuilt. In the meantime, the airline is encouraging travelers to book now. The new flights began on January 3 and will resume on a weekly basis to the city of Amhara region.
