On February 7, Ethiopian Airlines is ready with a special welcoming arrangement for Chinese nationals traveling to Seychelles for their Chinese New Year celebrations. The welcoming ceremony is part of the program held on January 25 at Addis Ababa airport for all Chinese New Year travelers under the theme, “Ethiopian Airlines takes you home,” which aims at making them feel at home during their travel time. On that date, traditional dancers will pepper the event at the airport arrival lounge and will extend a special Seychellois hospitality welcome as well.
Seychelles-based Ethiopian Airlines Manager, Mereset Tekelign, said: “Here, I would like to repeat our MD Ethiopian international service, Mr. Esayas Woldemariam’s, report – this is to showcase that Addis Ababa is being the most Chinese-friendly transit hub as well as that Ethiopian Airlines is becoming the most Chinese-friendly airline in Africa. All [this] shows them that Seychelles is [a] home away from home, too, and Ethiopian Airlines is their own airline.”
Four journalists are traveling on this flight to share the warm welcoming atmosphere and their holiday experience in the paradise land.
Ethiopian flies to four destinations in China – Beijing, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, and Shanghai – with a total of over 28 flights a week to the Asian country.
Seychelles is a founding member of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) .
