Ethiopian Airlines

Ethiopian Airlines has unveiled a large scale expansion of its long haul flights to Europe, USA and Asia for the upcoming summer 2008 peak season. The main highlights are as follows :

IAD - increased from 4 to 5 weekly flights flown via FCO-Rome using a B 763ER effective March 30th.DEL/PEK - increased from 3 to 5 weekly flights using a B 763ER. ET has 5th freedom rights on the DEL-PEK-DEL sector. This will come into effect from March 3rd.

CAN - increased from 3 to 5 weekly flights using a B 763ER flown via BKK. ET has 5th freedom rights on the BKK-CAN-BKK sector.

BKK - increased from 6 to 9 weekly flights i.e. 3 nonstop terminator flights + 6 weekly flights which continue onwards to CAN. All BKK operated flights will be flown using a B 763ER.


Seems like ET is following in its main rival's KQs footsteps in expanding its presence in key Asian markets such as BKK & CAN.

Quite the contrary ... KQ seems to be following ET, as those ET expansions you mentioned actually took effect back in October 2007 along with added service to other destinations in West Africa and the Middle East. ET's summer schedule is yet to come ...
