On Wednesday (March 15, 2023), Ethiopian Airlines announced that they will resume service between Addis Ababa (ADD) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL) for the first time since 2021 on March 25, 2023. The route will be operated four times per week with an ultra-modern Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Ethiopian’s Kuala Lumpur flights will be operated with an interim stop at Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN). The carrier originally launched three weekly flights between Addis Ababa and Kuala Lumpur in 2012, but the service was suspended in 2021 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

In Wednesday’s announcement, Ethiopian Airlines Group’s CEO, Mr. Mesfin Tasew, said,

“We are excited to bring our Kuala Lumpur flights back to service. The resumption of the flights reopens convenient and seamless travel options between Kuala Lumpur and more than 60 African destinations. Kuala Lumpur is a destination of choice for both business and leisure travelers, and we are proud to provide a convenient travel option that is suitable for passengers traveling for either of the purposes. These flights are also one of the channels easing the diplomatic and socio-economic ties between Malaysia and Africa thus, the resumption of the service plays a significant role in the relationship of the two regions.”
