Ethiopian Airlines’ Cargo and Logistics Service has announced that it has finalized the extension of its services to trans-pacific routes. As of this month, its cargo services are going to be available from Incheon (South Korea) to Atlanta (USA) via Anchorage (Alaska).
The carrier B777-200F, one of the most technologically advanced aircrafts on the route, is going to be the main carrier on the route. The carrier offers extensive cargo services with reduced flight hours, increased connectivity, and better payloads.
Ethiopian Group CEO, Tewolde Gebremariam told reporters that the new cargo service is going to cut total air transport time between continental Asia and North America significantly and facilitate global trade. He also asserted that the extended services are going to help Ethiopian Airlines maintain its role in the delivery of medical supplies essential to combating the pandemic.
Operating next-generation freighters and being Africa’s largest trans-shipment terminal, the airline facilitates the export of perishables, garments, and mining products and the import of high-value industrial products, and pharmaceuticals.
