In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, several major airlines around the world have announced suspension of flights to China. However, Ethiopian Airlines has not followed suit.

Arguably the most influential airline in Africa, Ethiopian Airlines reaffirmed its support to the Chinese government and its people.

It further insists that it will work with all relevant Chinese and Ethiopian agencies to protect passengers and crew members from the disease. This, in full compliance with the guidelines of the International Air Transport Association, W.H.O. and the Centre for Disease Control.
