Ethiopian Airlines Releases Official Statement on Flight ET608


Ethiopian Airlines has released an official statement about its flight that reportedly landed at Hong Kong airport on 1 September, 2023 amidst a Typhoon. The flight had originated from on 31 August and was operaring via Bangkok. Read the full statement below.


"Ethiopian Flight ET608 from Addis Ababa to Hong Kong via Bangkok landed at Hong Kong airport on September 1st at its scheduled arrival time. The flight departed from Bangkok after getting weather forecast information that the weather at Hong Kong would be safe for landing at the time of arrival. Accordingly, the flight proceeded and landed at Hong Kong since the weather conditions were within the normal range and after securing clearance from the Hong Kong airport ATC.


The Ethiopian Flight Dispatch team was aware of the Typhoon earlier and was following up the flight from planning up to all phases of the flight between Addis Ababa and Hong Kong, giving regular updates to the crew. The flight was operated in consideration of the weather forecast that indicated the Typhoon was far away from Hong Kong airport at the time of arrival of Ethiopian flight.


Hence, the report from some media which stated the flight landed at Hong Kong airport in the middle of the super Typhoon is absolutely incorrect. We would like to inform all that the flight landed at Hong Kong smoothly while the actual weather condition was within the acceptable limits. Later, the weather at Hong Kong deteriorated and the airport was closed for operation. As a result, the return flight ET609 was postponed by 24 hours."

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
