The flag carrier of Ethiopia will operate three weekly direct flights between Amman and Addis Ababa.

The inaugural flight, which carried Ethiopian Airlines representatives, was greeted with the customary 'water arch' salute in the presence of Airport International Group representatives, the carrier's general sales agent in Jordan, Dahab Travel, and ground handler Menzies Aviation.

"We are delighted to welcome Ethiopian Airlines as a new regular carrier to our expanding airline network and to establish a direct connection to the carrier's hub in Addis Ababa, one of Africa's most important airport gateways." By doing so, we are actively cementing QAIA's position as the primary gateway to Jordan and the Levant by providing our passengers with multiple route options - a top priority as we work to recover pre-COVID traffic figures," said Airport International Group CEO Nicolas Claude.

Airport International Group is a Jordanian company comprising local and international investors with proven experience in airport rehabilitation, enhancement, operation, and management.
