    Default Ethiopian Airlines to Add 50x weekly capacity to China. "We're all Alone"....

    Ethiopia's national air carrier, Ethiopian Airlines (ET) plans to boost flight frequencies to China from the current 36 flights per week to 50 flights per week, an Ethiopian official said on Saturday.
    Ethiopian Airlines has five cargo and passenger flight destinations in China -- Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chengdu and Guangzhou.
    Speaking to Xinhua, Asrat Begashaw, head of public relations at Ethiopian Airlines, said Ethiopian Airlines plans to increase flight frequencies to China's capital Beijing from the current seven flights per week to 14 flights per week.
    Begashaw said ET plans to increase its flight frequency to China's commercial hub Shanghai from the current seven times per week to 10 times a week.
    "The remaining plan to include four more flight frequencies will be divided among ET's three other Chinese destinations, Guangzhou, Chengdu and Hong Kong," he told Xinhua.
    Begashaw further said ET's plan to increase the number of weekly flights to Chinese cities to 50 is expected to be fully completed by the end of 2020.
    Ethiopian Airlines is also planning to open new flight route to the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province, which is home to internationally known high-tech companies including Huawei and ZTE.
    Ethiopian Airlines was the first African carrier to offer flight services to China back in 1973
