Ethiopian adds flights to New York


Ethiopian Airlines is preparing to launch services to New York’s JFK airport by the end of June.

Ethiopian suspended flights to Newark (New Jersey) in 2004 to provide a non-stop service from Washington to Addis Ababa.

Flights from Addis Ababa to JFK will depart Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings, and will return from JFK to Addis Ababa the same evening, making an intermediate stop in Lomé (Togo).

Ethiopian will deploy a Boeing 787 Dreamliner on this route, configured with 24 business class and 246 economy seats, all of which are equipped with on-demand video monitors featuring a variety of entertainment options.
