Ethiopian Establishes Cargo Hub in West Africa
Ethiopian Cargo, Africa’s largest cargo operator serving 25 cargo destinations worldwide with six dedicated freighter aircraft, is opening a second African cargo hub in Lomé (Togo), in partnership with ASKY Airlines. The new cargo centre of the East African huge air-travel operator will begin operations this month after the phase-in of a B737- 400F.
For the past three years, Ethiopian and ASKY have been serving the needs of passengers travelling within, to and from West and Central Africa.
The Lomé hub enables them to benefit from the easy and convenient connectivity options offered by their extensive and coordinated passenger networks. Ethiopian and ASKY will use the new cargo hub in Lomé for conveying goods and commodities between West Africa and the rest of the world.
This partnership will enable easy and convenient air transport of high value and perishable goods to and from West and Central Africa, thereby playing an essential role in the region’s growth of trade and economic development.
