Ethiopian Airlines resume Mogadishu flights after 40 years


Ethiopian Airlines will start flying to the Somali capital, Mogadishu, on Nov. 2 for the first time in four decades, the state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting reported on Tuesday.

“Our flights will quickly grow to multiple daily flights given the huge volume of traffic between the two sisterly countries and the significant traffic between Somalia and the rest of the world,” the airline’s CEO, Tewolde Gebremariam, was quoted as saying by Fana.
