29 / 02 / 2012
ETHIOPIAN Airlines forecasts a growth of US$9.5 billion in revenue by 2025.
The carrier will also see a seven-fold uplift in cargo to 710,000 metric tonnes, Aba Milki Abagaro, director of sales and service, Central and West Africa, says.
The number of destinations Ethiopian serves will grow from 79 to 121. Overall fleet numbers will climb from 45 to 112 aircraft.
“In 2004 we projected $943 million as our revenue to be realised in 2010. But in 2010, we achieved a 227 per cent increase over our estimated projection, which made our 2010 revenue to stand at $1.227 million,” Abagaro comments. “We are therefore confident that in 2025 we will achieve our goals.”
