(eTN) – Effective November 1, Singapore Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines (ET) will commence a codeshared flight connection between Addis Ababa and Singapore, adding a new destination for both airlines. The daily flights will route via Dubai, from Addis, served by ET on a codeshared basis. Passengers destined for Singapore will then transit to their convenient connection on Singapore Airlines to Singapore.
It was not possible to ascertain if the arrangement can or will be extended to destinations served beyond the respective partner’s hubs in Addis and Singapore to a wider range of African and Asian destinations.
Singapore Airlines has been a Star Alliance member since the early years when the alliance was formed and Ethiopian was undergoing a process of harmonization with alliance requirements before moving from applicant status to full member, in due course.
