Ethiopian Airlines to Resume Service to New York
Ethiopian Airlines has announced its readiness to launch a three-weekly one-stop service to New York’s JFK airport by the end of June.
The airline suspended flights to Newark in 2004 to provide nonstop service from Washington to Addis Ababa, with connections to its network in East, Central and Southern Africa.
Ethiopian’s network will once again provide a vital link between New York and Africa with this new service.
Flights from Addis Ababa to JFK will depart Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings, and will return from JFK to Addis Ababa the same evening.
Flights will make an intermediate stop in Lomé, home base for Ethiopian Airline’s partner ASKY Airlines, in both directions.
Ethiopian will deploy the Boeing 787 Dreamliner 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.
