Aviation news: Gulf Air comes to Addis


(eTN) – Information received from the Ethiopian capital speaks of Gulf Air to commence a five times a week service between their home base in Bahrain to Addis Ababa.

Flights are due to start in December of this year and are part of Gulf’s apparent plans to expand their Africa network once again. Sadly, the airline did withdraw a number of years ago from Entebbe, but their addition of Addis will open the option for them to eventually, depending on load factors, to continue these flights to other destinations in Eastern or Central Africa.
