“Hence, Ethiopian airlines will continue to offer the usual high quality service from PHC starting from September 3, 2019 until 23 November 2019.”

General Manager of Ethiopian Airlines in Nigeria, Firihiewot Mekonnen however said Ethiopian will “resume operation to/from Enugu as soon as the renovation is completed and the date of reopening will be communicated in due course.”

The airline said: “Nigeria is the only African country where Ethiopia has opened four destinations.”
