Ethiopian Airlines expands Asian routes


Ethiopian Airlines plans to adjust its Asian network from the 18th of June, adding three new destinations — Ho Chi Minh, Manila and Seoul Incheon. The airline will delink Bangkok from its Addis Ababa-Hong Kong service, with Hong Kong to be served directly from Addis Ababa instead of four weekly flights routed through Bangkok. Effective 18 June, the daily Bangkok services will extend to Kuala Lumpur and a new destination, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

Until June, the Star Alliance member will continue to operate four weekly Addis Ababa – Bangkok – Hong Kong services, and three weekly Addis Ababa – Bangkok – Kuala Lumpur services, using a 767-300ER. Hong Kong will be served directly by daily flights from the Ethiopian capital with flights extending to Seoul or Manila. Three of the daily Addis Ababa – Hong Kong services will fly on to Manila and the remaining four weekly services will serve Seoul Incheon.

Three of the daily flights to Bangkok will extend to Ho Chi Minh using a 246-seat 767-300ER. Reservations for Ho Chi Minh City are not yet open. The Addis Ababa – Bangkok – Kuala Lumpur service will increase from three to four weekly flights.
