Ethiopian Airlines has entered into a codeshare agreement with United Airlines, effective Aug. 30.
Ethiopian, the largest airline in Africa, currently flies to 83 international destinations across five continents. It operates the youngest and most modern fleet in Africa, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 777 LR aircraft. Ethiopian provides daily services to Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) on the B777 or B787 aircraft, with convenient connections through the airline’s main hub in Addis Ababa (ADD) to 49 cities across Africa.
The new codeshare agreement between the two Star Alliance-member airlines covers the Addis Ababa-Washington, D.C. trunk route, as well as other points in the US and Africa. With this new agreement, travellers between the US and Africa will be able to enjoy seamless connectivity options, thanks to United’s extensive network in the US and Ethiopian’s coverage of east, central, southern and western African destinations.
