Ethiopian Airlines has decided to re-route its Addis Ababa to Washington DC daily flights via Dublin. In addition the three times a week flight from Addis Ababa to Toronto will also be re-routed through Dublin. These flights are currently operated via Rome.
It is understood that these flights will not have fifth freedom rights at this time. The new routes will commence on 10th May and will be outwards only.
This is certainly positive news for Dublin Airport, as it continues to increase aircraft movements through the airport.
