When the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja was closed for repairs, ET was the only international airline that flew to the alternative airport in Kaduna. ET is eager to provide our passengers with our traditional world class service in the most technically advanced aircraft in the world.
“Ethiopian is the first airline to bring the B787 Dreamliner to all the four airports in Nigeria. It was also the first to bring the Airbus A350 to Nigeria.
Before the Covid-19 Lockdown, ET operated to four airports in Nigeria, and since the gradual reopening of the airspace in Nigeria, only Lagos and Abuja airports were allowed for international Flights. With the completion of the new airport terminals and further improvements in Covid-19 situation in Nigeria, the Federal Government has announced a phased re-opening of Kano,Enugu and Port Harcourt airports for I”nternational flights .
ET will soon announce schedules for flight operations to Enugu and Kano.”
