Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services, the largest cargo operator in Africa, disclosed that it has started a weekly freighter service to Bangkok, Thailand and Hanoi, Vietnam since last week.
Ethiopian Group CEO, Mr Tewolde Gebremariam, noted, “Our new cargo service to Bangkok and Hanoi will supplement the daily belly hold cargo capacity on passenger aircraft and will create better connectivity for cargo transport not just between Ethiopia and Thailand and Vietnam but also to over 60 destinations we serve in Africa.”
This makes Ethiopian Airlines the first African carrier to operate cargo flights from Bangkok, and will also create better opportunity for Thai and Vietnamese exporters to have a one-stop access to the 60 plus African destinations Ethiopian serves, it was indicated.
The freighter flight will also link Bangkok and Hanoi to Europe, Asia, Middle East and the Americas.
Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services facilitates the export of perishables, garments, mining products, and the import of high value industrial products and inputs, pharmaceuticals, among others across its global network.
In line with its Vision 2025, Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services has built the largest cargo terminal in Africa with an annual capacity of around 1 million tons and delivers cargo services spanning across 44 international destinations in Africa, the Gulf, Middle East, Asia, North America, Latin America and Europe with its dedicated freighters of 11 B777F and 2 B738F as well as over 400 tons of daily belly capacity.
