Ethiopian Airlines to launch Newark Liberty-Addis Ababa flights

Ethiopia’s national carrier Ethiopian Airlines has announced it will be launching flights to Newark Liberty from Addis Ababa starting from July 3, 2016. The airline had earlier planned to launch flights to New York JFK, but later changed its plans. The flights between the two destinations will be operated via Lomé in Togo.

Ethiopian Airlines, which is a member of Star Alliance, initially operated flights to Newark Liberty International Airport in the past but decided to suspend its services in 2004 and instead chose to conduct flights services to Washington Dulles International Airport instead.

The airline said that it will be deploying Boeing 787-8 aircrafts to conduct flights on the new Addis Ababa-Lomé-Newark Liberty route. The aircraft will be configured with 24 seats in business class and 246 seats in economy class. The service is aimed at offering seamless connections to customers for traveling between Newark Liberty and several other cities throughout Africa.

U.S. travelers booking flight tickets to Addis Ababa from Newark Liberty will be able to take advantage of the new service for connecting to/from many cities in East Africa and South Africa, including Johannesburg, Kigali, Kampala, Khartoum, Dares-Salaam and Nairobi. The customers will also be able to connect to/from other destinations as well, which includes Yaoundé, Ouagadougou, Niamey, N’djamena, Libreville, Lagos, Kinshasa, Douala, Dakar, Conakry, Brazzaville, Bissau, Bamako and Abidjan.

Newark Liberty will now become Ethiopian Airlines’ fourth gateway in North America and 93rd international gateway. Currently, Ethiopian Airlines is operating daily nonstop flights to Addis Ababa from Washington Dulles. The airline is also offering thrice weekly nonstop flights to Addis Ababa from Toronto. Apart from these routes, the airline is also conducting thrice weekly flights services to Addis Ababa from Los Angeles via Dublin. In 2015, Ethiopian Airlines had launched flights from Addis Ababa to several destinations, including Goma, Yaoundé, Gaborone, Durban, Cape Town, Los Angeles, Dublin, Manila and Tokyo.
