Ethiopian Airlines To Service Bulawayo Route

Ethiopian Airlines will, in October, launch a new service to Bulawayo as part of the airline’s expansion program.

ET will , in addition, begin direct flights to Gaborone, Botswana.

The announcement comes at a perfect time as African airline traffic has returned to 66% of pre-pandemic levels.

Ethiopian Airlines plans to add its third Zimbabwean destination when it flies to Bulawayo on the 30th of October.

The move will help bring Zimbabwe’s second largest city right on the same league as other major international travel hubs.

Flights will be operated 4x weekly using a Boeing 737-800 which will be upgraded to the newer Max 8 on the 1st of December.

The route will be operated as a triangular route from Addis Ababa – Victoria Falls – Bulawayo – Addis Ababa.

Also starting from thee 30th of October, flights to Gaborone will be operated 5x weekly direct from Addis Ababa instead of the previous triangular route which operated 4x weekly via Victoria Falls (Addis Ababa – Victoria Falls – Gaborone – Addis Ababa). Flights will be onboard the Boeing 737-800.
