Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO, Mesfin Tasew, said: “We are excited to return to Karachi nearly two decades after we last served the city. As the most populous city in Pakistan, Karachi will be a crucial gateway to Pakistan and the wider South Asia region. As the only flight connecting Pakistan with Africa, the planned service to Karachi will have significant contribution in strengthening the diplomatic and economic relations between the two regions. It will also offer convenient air connectivity to the growing number of Pakistani investors in Africa as well as tourists.”
Ethiopian first served Karachi from July 1966 to December 1971, and resumed the service from June 1993 until July 2004.
