  • Update: Africa Is Taking Steps To Become A Borderless Nation

    On December 12, 2017, Its Your Time To Travel* radio show asked the question "What's the value of Africa becoming a borderless nation". 





    Answer: The hope is that by making travel easier in Africa, trade and economic growth will flourish among African countries. 



    Today, Ethiopian Airlines has announced it is looking to establish new hub airports in southern Africa, Central Africa and the Horn, in order to better connect neighboring countries, and further develop trade and tourism within the continent. 




    In case you didn't know international travel to the African continent blossoms—visitation was up 6.5 percent in 2017—getting to Africa is becoming easier than ever. A number of carriers are increasing or expanding international service to their African hubs. 



    While getting to the continent may be easier than ever, moving around Africa often times remains a challenge. 




    So, Ethiopian Airlines is seeking to alleviate some of that pain by establishing new hub airports in southern Africa, Central Africa and the Horn, in order to better connect neighboring countries, and further develop trade and tourism within the continent. 



    Best example would be Addis Ababa which is a very successful hub. Out of the around 11 million passengers they transport every year, 70 percent are not entering Addis. They are transit passengers to other African countries and the rest of the world.” 




    Ethiopian Airlines is connecting Europe with Africa, the Middle East with Africa and Asia with Africa. Ethiopian Airlines want to expand and be close to their customers. With a very large landmass and around one billion population, Africa has a high growth opportunity. By expanding the hubs, they will be contributing significantly to intra-Africa connectivity.  





    Carriers in Africa is trying to develop a continental open skies agreement also known as a YD. Discussions of a universal adoption of the YD come just as some African nations also contemplate creating a borderless Africa, lessening the need for visas for intercontinental travel. 



    For Ethiopian Airlines, it’s all about establishing a “missing link.” 




    “As a Pan-African Airline, serving their beloved continent Africa has always been a source of pride for Ethiopian Airlines, with this commitment, Ethiopian has been able to create a missing link, availing easy movement of Africans from one corner to the other.” 





    In 2017, Ethiopian Airlines added 12 new destinations with another 10 new destinations planned by June 2018. In North America, the airline serves Washington D.C., Toronto and Los Angeles.
