Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services has announced a new domestic cargo service to Dire Dawa and Jigjiga that will operate three times a week from August 30.

Ethiopian told Air Cargo News it “will operate its Q400 preighter aircraft” on the service.

In March, Ethiopian Airlines partnered with International Djibouti Industrial Park Operation (IDIPO) and Air Djibouti as it looks to develop sea-air operations between China and Africa.

Ethiopian operates in major trade lanes between Africa and Europe and the Middle East and Asia, serving more than 66 global freighter destinations with its 13 dedicated freighter aircraft – nine Boeing 777-200F and four Boeing 737-800F.

Currently, Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics Services operates a warehouse with annual capacity of around 1m tons, equipped with temperature controlled facilities.
