Ethiopian Mozambique Airlines (EMA) has announced that will be indefinitely suspending domestic flights starting from tomorrow (May 6th) due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the statement from the company, due to the decrease in demand for the domestic flights that the airlines run, it has become necessary to suspend all flights for the foreseeable future.
Ethiopian Mozambique Airlines is Ethiopian Airlines’ subsidiary that has been running domestic flights across Mozambique since December 2018.
The pandemic has very adversely impacted the aviation industry globally with many airlines being forced to adopt or limit their operations extensively. Despite the suspension it is undertaking, Ethiopia Mozambieu is expected to adopt Ethiopian Airlines’ approach to the pandemic and shift to a cargo-based service provision.
