Eritrean Airlines Reviews

Eritrean Airlines Reviews

Eritrean are naturally born soft-spoken people and friendly and the country itself has a low crime rate. Unlike other countries, in Eritrea, you can roam around in the cities at night times without the fear of any criminal activity. Readers are suggesting me to write a review about the national airline of Eritrea. Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy your flight with Eritrean Airlines.

Origins and Ownership

Eritrean Airlines traces its roots back to May 1, 1991 initially serving as a ground handling agent headquartered in Asmara International airport and fully owned by the government of Eritrea. May 2002 marked the commencement of the operation as an airline. The current fleet size of the flag carrier of Eritrea  consists of 1 Boeing 737 and 1 Boeing 767 which now serve 5 destinations internationally.

In December 2012, European Commission banded Eritrean Airlines for chartering flights within Europe because the airline didn’t comply with the European Union safety standards. However, in 2014, Eritrean Airlines commenced operations routed to Europe since they were able to fulfill the requirement of  international safety oversight standards.

Eritrean Airlines Reviews-pageOfficial Website

It took me a lot of time to find the official website of Eritrean Airlines but thanks to the reliable Wikipedia. Well, basically Eritrean Airlines’ page is not similar to other airline pages. It’s not positively unique, but just completely different. It promptly flashes images of attractions in Eritrea and worldwide renowned tourist spots. The site itself mainly focuses on inspiring travelers to different destinations. This also includes their social media account, Facebook.

Eritrean Airlines Reviews of Passengers

Since Eritrean Airlines is just a new airline, it is obvious why there are just few Eritrean Airlines reviews about them. On Skytrax’s they scored a total of 7/10 based on 6 passengers reviews. However, the most recent review was posted back on August 6, 2012 and she said:

“Seats comfortable and legroom generous. FA’s professional and efficient yet quite reserved and rarely smiled. The food quality in general was rather average on the outbound leg offered 3 meals which were tasty and rather filling. On the 6 hour inbound trip offered a small and just edible breakfast option. Slightly limited beverage options.

Luggage allowance is generous yet only 2 kg more for Business passengers (48kg). Customer service at Asmara Airport has improved yet the Terminal is small and old and needs renovations no Business Class lounge available.” She gave the airline a 7 out of 10 rating for this review.

  1. The crew are most friendly. The onboard service was excellent and standard of the aircraft was good though the legroom wasn’t great. The ground handling done by the airline at Asmara International Airport was efficient even though there were a number of shortcomings at the airport the airline got round them. The price of the ticket was worth the service I received.
