Ethiopian Airlines (ET) is set to commence flights to the Nigerien capital, Niamey,  on-board a B757-200 with effect from November 20. AirlineRoute writes that the 4x weekly service will operate onwards to the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou.

The announcement follows the signing of a renewed bilateral air services agreement last year between the two countries, replacing an outdated version from 1981.
