Ethiopian Airlines Launches Stopover Promotion
Passengers traveling through Addis Ababa and continuing their journey to one of the destinations on Ethiopian’s network can now take advantage of special stopover packages from Ethiopian Holidays, the tour operator wing of Ethiopian Airlines.
The packages range from sightseeing in Addis Ababa, the diplomatic capital of Africa, to visits to the pre-Christian era obelisks of Axum, the stunning medieval rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the 9th century mosques of Harar, the castles of Gondar, the source of the Blue Nile, the Simien Mountains, the lake side resorts of Hawassa and Arba Minch, or the unique coffee farms of Kaffa, and much, much more.
Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde Gebremariam, said, “Ethiopian is working with all stakeholders in the tourism chain to make Ethiopia a tourism destination of choice. With its many riches, the world has yet to truly discover Ethiopia and tourism has the potential to become the main foreign currency generator for the country and a mass job creator for the youth. With the stopover packages, we aim to attract a significant portion of our transit customers in Addis as tourists and to considerably enhance the flow of tourism into the country.”
An online e-visa service for processing the stopover visa is available for all international visitors to Ethiopia.
