New Route of the Day (1 July 2024): Ethiopian Airlines between Addis Ababa and Warsaw WAW

Cake of the week

Ethiopian Airlines introduced a new service between Addis Ababa and Warsaw WAW via Athens on Monday 1 July. The flights will be maintained 4-weekly, on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays, and Sundays departing Addis Ababa, with the 160-seat 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

The Star Alliance member faces no competition on the route and does not hold fifth freedom traffic rights between Athens and Warsaw WAW, meaning it cannot sell tickets on the sector.

Flight ET764 departs Addis Ababa at 23:35 local time, arriving in Athens at 05:05 local time the following morning. It departs the Greek capital at 06:05 local time, touching down in Warsaw WAW at 08:05 local time. The return service, operating as flight ET765, will leave the Polish capital at 21:00 local time every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, setting down at Eleftherios Venizelos Airport at 00:40 local time the following day. Then at 01.40 local time it’s time for the longer leg to Addis Ababa, where the jet will pull up at 06:35 local time.

What they said

Mesfin Tasew, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group, said: “We are truly pleased to establish yet another connection between Africa and Central Europe with the flight that we have commenced today to Warsaw, Poland. We are committed to enhance our passengers’ convenience in traveling across the globe in a seamless connection, and we are proud to take our African Flavoured Ethiopian Hospitality services further to Poland.”

Warsaw gets first destination in Horn of Africa

Addis Ababa becomes the first destination to be served from Warsaw WAW in Africa outside of the north of the continent. Warsaw WAW boasts flights to Djerba and Monastir in Tunisia, Marrakesh in Morocco, as well as Cairo, Mersa Matruh, and Marsa Alam in Egypt. All the routes, with exception to Cairo, are maintained seasonally.
