Los Angeles Welcomes New Ethiopian Direct Flight from Dublin

The Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board were in Dublin to brief the trade and media on the new direct service from Dublin to Los Angeles. The location was Dublin’s trendiest new venue, The Dean Hotel, which was well chosen as it really exudes a real Californian ambiance. Francine Sheridan gave a very informative update on this truly exciting destination and added that the visitor target is 50 million by 2020.IMG_8276

On 20th June 2015 Los Angeles World Airports welcomed the inaugural Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Ababa to Los Angeles, via Dublin.
