I am told that the airlines of some countries have developed an idea to launch direct flights from major European, American and Asian cities to Mekelle International Airport in Tigrai. As far as I am concerned, this is good news for the people of Tigrai, for the rest of Ethiopia and for the people of the whole region, demonstrating a real cooperative spirit.
Indeed, considering the economic benefits and the national prestige that this initiative will bring, the idea of flying directly to Mekelle is a very innovative, creative, and revolutionary idea – one that should be fully and wholeheartedly supported by all well-meaning people and especially the Tigrian people themselves.
I am informed by some reliable individuals that one of the airlines engaged in serious planning to fly directly to Mekelle is Turkish Airlines and obviously, as far as reliability, safety, and competitive fares are concerned, this is a very good airline.
In the meantime, let us wait and see if the news received by Mdrebahri.com is factual information.
