Regarding the upcoming services, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, remarked, It gives me a great pleasure to launch flights to John F. Kennedy Airport, our second station in New York in addition to Newark, connecting the North America’s gateway with our extended network of more than 120 destinations globally.

The U.S. is one of our most important markets owing to the presence of a large African diaspora and the promising multi-faceted relations between Africa and the USA. Hence, the new service is a significant addition to our expanding network in the USA and offers better connectivity for African and US passengers. Moreover, the service catalyzes trade, tourism, investment and people- to- people relations between Africa and the United States. With new JFK flight services, Ethiopian will be serving 24 weekly flights between African and North America.”
