Ethiopian Cargo signs up for five more years with Liege

Ethiopian Airlines Cargo has signed up for another five years at Liege Airport.

The deal means that Liege Airport will continue to be Ethiopian Airlines cargo hub serving as a freighter gateway between Africa and Europe until 2026.

Ethiopian Airlines Cargo and Logistics Services acting managing director said: “In collaboration with Liege Airport, Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services has been providing fast and secure cargo transportation service across Europe and beyond for the last 15 years of successful cooperation.

“In the next five years, we will work to transform our freighter operation to serve Europe better with our renewed commitment with Liege Airport. As the largest pan African carrier, Ethiopian Airlines will continue to strengthen its partnership with Liege Airport to boost its freighter operations between Africa and Europe.”

Steven Verhasselt, vice president of commercial at Liege Airport said the deal would help with the development of a new cargo area.

“In the future a dedicated cargo hub can be established in Liege North, for which Ethiopian was the launch customer to start with,” he said. “We are very much looking forward to this next step that will help Ethiopian to serve its customers even better.”

Verhasselt added that since Ethiopian began flying to the airport 15 years ago, the airline has operated 15,000 freighter flights into LGG and is approaching 1m tonnes of cargo carried.
