Ethiopian Airlines has hinted at plans to expand UK services to airports outside of London.
In a press release announcing an increase in flights between Addis Ababa and Heathrow this summer, the carrier’s UK country manager Michael Yohannes said that “this increase in capacity reinforces our commitment to widen our foot print and paves the way to possibly extend our reach to other parts of the UK in the very near future”.
Between June 2 and October 27 Ethiopian will add three extra frequencies to London, bringing the total to ten flights per week.
The additional services will operate on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and all flights on the route will be served by the carrier’s A350 aircraft, with 313 seats in economy, and 30 in business.
