On Thursday (October 14, 2021), Ethiopian Airlines announced the signing on a new interline agreement with South African carrier Airlink.

Customers can book their tickets on either airline and enjoy convenient reciprocal check-in and baggage handling.

In Thursday’s announcement Ethiopian Airlines Group’s CEO, Mr. Tewolde Gebremariam, said,

“In our continuous commitment and endeavor to expand our service beyond our extensive network in Africa, we are happy to enhance our cooperation and add Airlink to our list of growing partners in Africa. As South Africa represents the continent’s largest market and with the significant changes in the region’s industry players, implementation of this interline agreement will create ease of access to those travelling to/from South African regional airports and Ethiopian destinations across five continents.”
