Ethiopian Airlines Returns to NYC

Ethiopian Airlines will restart service to New York City-JFK after a 12-year absence.

Service will begin in June 2016 using the airline’s Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, which has 24 seats in business class and 246 in economy. The 787 features the airline’s state-of-the-art on demand entertainment system and other technologies to maximize the passenger experience.

Flights from Addis Ababa to New York JFK will depart on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday mornings and return from JFK to Addis Ababa on the same evenings and will arrive in Addis Ababa the following day. In both directions, the flight will stop in Lomé, Togo.

The flight will allow passengers to connect to multiple destinations from New York. In addition, passengers travelling on the airline will be able to connect to multiple destinations throughout Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

“We are thrilled to resume our service to New York, our fourth destination in the Americas,” says Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines.
