Next month, Pakistan will have direct flights on Africa's largest airline.

According to Jemal Beker Abdula, the Ethiopian ambassador to Pakistan, Ethiopian Airlines, the continent’s largest airline and the country’s flag carrier, will start operating flights in Pakistan on March 26.

The African airline would connect Pakistan with the African continent by running two direct flights a week between Karachi and Addis Abeba. The airline has a fleet of about 150 aircraft and offers service to over 130 locations.

Even though the two nations have had diplomatic relations for a total of 64 years, beginning in 1958, a full-fledged Ethiopian embassy was only established in Islamabad in 2022.

Jemal Beker Abdula, the first Ethiopian ambassador to Pakistan, has been working very hard to improve ties between the two countries.

The ambassador is upbeat about the future of trade between Ethiopia and Pakistan despite the difficulties brought on by recent events, such as trade and economic troubles and the catastrophic effects of climate change.

The business communities of both nations are keen to investigate commercial prospects in one another’s marketplaces, which bodes well for future bilateral commerce.

The ambitious target stated by the Ethiopian envoy is to double the existing $80 million trade volume between Pakistan and Ethiopia to $200 million.
