ETHIOPIAN PUSHES ADDITIONAL HONG KONG FLIGHTS TO DECEMBER
Information was received that the planned additional flights between Addis Ababa and Hong Kong, due to start earlier this week, have been pushed to now commence on December 14th. From the present 4 flights a week, routing from Addis via Bangkok to Hong Kong, the destination will be served daily using a B767 aircraft. This will also push the number of weekly flights to Bangkok to overall 10.
No specific reasons could be obtained why the start of the extra flights was postponed from the 24th November to the mid December date although there has been some speculation that aircraft availability may have played a role, as the Ethiopian flag carrier awaits further deliveries of their latest ‘bird’, the B787 Dreamliner, which will then allow the re-allocation of their B767’s to other routes or increases in frequencies as is the case here.
