Ethiopian Airlines has announced that it will re-structure its U.S. network, opening new destination, adding frequencies and shifting gateways for the summer of 2019.
Accordingly, Washington D.C. flights will be increased from current daily to ten weekly flights. The new additional three flights will pass thru Abidjan departing from Addis Ababa in the morning and arriving in Washington D.C. in the evening.
The current three weekly flights to Chicago will be increased to five weekly flights.
From the planned daily flights to New York, four will be served via Lomé to Newark and three will be via Abidjan to JFK Airport.
Lastly, there will be a new gateway, Houston, which will replace Los Angeles, and will be served three times per week via West Africa. The new Houston flights will be the only connection between Houston and Africa and will facilitate the travel of the huge African community in the Houston area, and oil and other companies doing business in the continent.
Flights will be served with latest technology aircraft, the Boeing 787, which offers unparalleled on-board comfort.
