Ethiopian Airlines coming to Singapore
« on: Jun 17, 13, 05:07 AM »
From CAPA Centre for Aviation

Singapore Changi is close to plugging the biggest hole in its network, East Africa, with a proposed new service from Ethiopian Airlines. As traffic growth at Changi slows significantly, the airport needs to identify new markets. Africa, particularly East Africa, opens the door to an array of traffic flows which currently bypass Singapore.

Africa has emerged as an important and fast-growing region for Asia. A Singapore-Addis Ababa route gives Changi connections throughout Africa as well as an alternative for exploiting the fast-growing Asia-Brazil market.

Securing Ethiopian is critical for Changi as Singapore has fallen behind other Asian hubs in attracting African carriers.
