Ethiopian Mozambique, a subsidiary of Ethiopian Airlines, has indefinitely suspended its domestic flights connecting several provincial capitals, the company announced in a statement seen by Pan African Visions on Monday.
The company says that due to covid-19, demand has fallen and it has become unsustainable to continue operations. It adds that flights will resume as soon as conditions improve.
Ethiopian Mozambique Airlines started flights on December 1, 2018. The new airline serveded 8 domestic points in Mozambique including the capital Maputo, Nampula, Tete, Pemba, Beira, Nacala, Quelimane and Chimoio.
Ethiopian was selling tickets for Mozambican domestic routes at prices much cheaper than those charged by state-owned Mozambique Airlines LAM.
