Ethiopian Airlines Expands Global Destinations

Other airlines in Africa might want to pay attention, as the growth of Ethiopian Airlines is taking off, literally.

In the last the two months, the airline has continued to rapidly expand its offerings, adding several key locations around the globe.

Some of the new terminals and destinations include traveler’s favorites like Los Angeles, Cape Town, Gaborone and Manila.

On June 20, the airline began flying into its own terminal at Los Angeles Airport (LAX), making it the first African airline to operate on the West Coast of the US.

The flight will connect in Dublin, making it the only flight from Africa that connects Ireland and the West Coast.

Although the trip is fairly long, passengers will ride in comfort on the company’s cozy Boeing 787 Dreamliner.


Flights to Cape Town (its second destination in South Africa) and Gaborone began on June 30.

Both flights will operate three times a week, offering travelers good flexibility to get there.

The flight to Manila began on July 9 and brought the company’s total international destinations to 90.

The connection will hopefully continue to develop the growing tourism segment between Africa and Asia.

Ethiopian Airlines is one of the largest and fastest growing airlines in Africa, including a large share of the pan-African passenger and cargo network.
