Ethiopian Airlines: The European Routes, 2011

Ethiopian serves six European cities--the most of any sub-Saharan carrier, including South African Airways. Indeed, this portion of the map, with its several cities interconnected, resembles an African airline route system from decades previous.

With its close colonial connections with Italy, Rome is a logical switch station, with legs spinning off north to the massive Ethiopian communities both in Sweden and across the Atlantic in Washington, D.C.

Sadly, Dulles is Ethiopian's only US destination at present; service to both New York -JFK and Newark have proved unviable, even as the airline continues to add service to China, as seen in the previous post.

This is one of four posts detailing Ethiopian Airlines global network.
