Chicago joins Ethiopian’s global network

Ethiopian Airlines has it started services to Chicago as of June 10, 2018.

“Chicago will be our 4th destination in the U.S. and our 7th in the Americas,” said Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines. “It is the third biggest city in the U.S. and one of the most important global aviation hubs. We will be filling a critical air connectivity vacuum as our flights will be the only direct service between Chicago and Africa. Chicago is the main hub of our Star Alliance partner, United Airlines and the flight will be operated together with United to avail the best product for travelers from all over the U.S. connecting to 58 destinations in Africa.”

Ethiopian has deployed one of its Boeing 787 aircraft on the route. Chicago is Ethiopian’s fourth destination in the U.S. and the seventh in the Americas.
