Ethiopian regulator denies Etihad's request for weekly flights
- United Arab Emirates: Wednesday, October 31 - 2012 at 10:04
Etihad Airways has decided to suspend until further notice the launch of its services to Addis Ababa after the Ethiopian aviation regulator turned down the airline's request for the required operating permit. The Abu Dhabi-based airline was set to launch five weekly flights on November 2, 2012. Etihad accused the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of ignoring a memorandum of understanding signed between the two countries in June 2007, saying the decision was against interests of consumers. "The actions of the Ethiopian CAA ignore the memorandum of understanding between Abu Dhabi and Ethiopia. They are also very much against the best interests of consumers, who are being denied the opportunity to experience Etihad Airways' award-winning service," the airline said.
