Ethiopian Airlines has commenced thrice-weekly passenger service to Washington DC via Lomé, Togo as of 01 June 2022.
The new flight increases the frequency of Ethiopian Airlines’ flights to Washington DC to 10 from the existing seven weekly flights it operates via Dublin.
According to timesaerospace.aero, Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mesfin Tasew said: “We are very pleased to launch a new passenger service connecting Lomé with Washington DC. The U.S. is one of our most important markets due to the presence of a large African community and the growing business and tourism ties with Africa. The new flight further enhances the air connectivity between Africa and the U.S. and helps in fostering the economic, trade, tourism and diplomatic ties between the two regions. Going forward, we will continue to tap into opportunities for growing our services to more destinations in the U.S.”
