The press release went on to say, “Since the current number of telebirr service users has reached over 17.6 million, this officially launched online payment system would enable the Ethiopian Airlines’ customers to purchase domestic flight online tickets via telebirr, which is an easy and secured payment option and will help the Airlines to attain its 2.52 million customers’ domestic flight annual target of the year 2022. As a case in point, through the online ticket sales testing level launched on 14th April 2022 to this day, Ethiopian Airlines could manage to sell domestic flight tickets worth 6.67 million birr via telebirr.”
According to Ethio Telecom, since the launch of the telebirr service in May 2021, over 12.58 billion birr has been transferred or transacted, while over half a million USD (528.4 thousand dollars) has been transferred via telebirr from 34 countries in collaboration with eight international telebirr remittance partners.
