After a three-year hiatus, Ethiopian Airlines has announced its triumphant return to Madrid with direct flights from Bole Airport in Addis Ababa starting December 9, 2023. This highly anticipated route will include a stopover in Rome and will be served by the state-of-the-art A350-900XWB aircraft.
With four weekly rotations, Ethiopian Airlines intends to meet the growing demand for travel between Ethiopia and Spain. Flights will depart from Addis Ababa airport at the stroke of midnight, precisely at 00:05. After a brief stopover in Rome, passengers will continue their journey and arrive in the bustling city of Madrid around 8:10 am. The return flight from Madrid to Addis Ababa is scheduled for 7:25 p.m., allowing travelers to depart in the evening.
Passengers will be able to spend a full day exploring the Spanish capital before embarking on their journey back to Ethiopia.
This announcement is greeted with great enthusiasm, as the flag carrier of the Central African country has a reputation for delivering exceptional service and a world-class flight experience. The choice of the A350-900XWB for this route reflects the airline’s commitment to providing its passengers with the utmost comfort and luxury.
The resumption of this air link is an important step for Ethiopia and Spain. It will undoubtedly strengthen the social, cultural and economic ties between the two nations. Ethiopian Airlines has a long history of connecting Africa to the rest of the world, and the reintroduction of this route further strengthens its position as a leading African carrier.
Travelers can expect a seamless experience when flying with Ethiopian Airlines. Through its extensive network, passengers will have access to convenient connections not only across Africa, but also to destinations in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The reintroduction of flights to Madrid will open up a wealth of travel options for professionals, tourists and students.
