Ethiopian Airlines will commence a triangular route connecting Addis Ababa, Ndola, and Maun from June 10. The flight will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays using a Boeing 738-MAX.

Flight ET 0833 will depart Addis Ababa at 08h30, arriving in Maun at 12h40. The return flight departs from Maun at 13h30, arriving in Ndola at 15h30. It then departs from Ndola at 16h20, arriving in Addis Ababa at 21h25.

Jillian Blackbeard, CEO of Africa’s Eden, told Tourism Update: “We welcome Ethiopian Airlines’ new route to Maun via Ndola, witnessing positive momentum in the aviation sector – a longstanding challenge in securing direct long-haul passenger access to our destinations. We congratulate Ethiopian Airlines for their bold approach and unwavering reliability.”

Andrew Flatt, Marketing Director of Desert and Delta Safaris, said: “This is a game-changer for both seasoned and aspiring travellers to Botswana. Not only does it simplify the journey, making it more cost-effective, but it also opens up opportunities for visitors to extend their stay in our region.”

He highlighted the benefits of choosing Maun as a layover destination, providing a unique opportunity for travellers to recharge and immerse themselves in the charms of the gateway to the Okavango Delta.

“With a variety of delightful accommodations and numerous local experiences awaiting discovery, Maun promises to be more than just a transit point. It is an integral part of the journey, made even more accessible thanks to Ethiopian Airlines.”
