ETHIOPIAN Airline would resume flights to Enugu as from October 1, 2021, two years after it suspended flight to the South-East.

  The airline’s general manager, Shimeles Arage, made this known in a statement in Lagos, on Sunday. He said that every week, there would be a flight on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, with B787 Dreamliner.

  “October 1 is Nigeria’s Independence Day and the flight to Enugu on that day will reinforce Ethiopian Airline’s good relations with Nigeria since the first flight to Nigeria in 1960,” Arage said.

  He recalled that the airline stopped flights to Enugu in 2019, when the Nigerian aviation authorities closed the airport to refurbish the runway.

  He said before the closure of the airport for runway repairs, Ethiopian was the only international airline flying to Enugu.

  The airport was officially re-opened to domestic flights in 2020 and to international flights in August, 2021.
