Ethiopian Airlines has entered into a codeshare
agreement with Air Côte d'Ivoire.
Under the new codeshare partnership,
passengers originating from West African countries, especially
from Lagos, Bamako, Cotonou, Accra and Lomé will board Air Côte
d'Ivoire flights and enjoy fast and seamless connection to Newark
on-board Ethiopian direct service to Newark via Abidjan.
Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO Ethiopian
Airlines, said, “We are very happy to partner with Air Côte
d'Ivoire with a view to connecting passengers from West Africa to our
new flights to Newark via Abidjan. I wish to thank the Côte
d'Ivoire Government and the Minister of Transport in particular as
well as Air Côte d'Ivoire for making this partnership possible.
Ethiopian new Abidjan flights to Newark will be operated in
complementarity to our existing Newark service via Lomé, which is
being availed together with our strategic partner, ASKY Airlines.
Such partnerships among sisterly African airlines are crucial for
African countries to fill the connectivity vacuum in the continent
and for African carriers to regain their market share in their
René Decurey, CEO of Air Côte d’Ivoire said,
"A few months ago, Abidjan airport was certified to carry out direct
links with the USA. It is now time to launch theses direct flights
and Air Côte d'Ivoire is very happy to carry out the operation in
codeshare with Ethiopian Airlines. This agreement will allow Air
Côte d'Ivoire to sell the flights as well. We will therefore be
able to offer passengers on our network, flights to the USA via
Abidjan with a single Air Côte d'Ivoire ticket. We are convinced
that this partnership is the beginning of a long collaboration
that will fully benefit our two Airlines and African passengers
who used to pass through Europe to travel to the USA."
Ethiopian currently flies to 58 cities in Africa
and more than 112 destinations globally.
