Ethiopian's Boeing 787 Dreamliner is configured with 24 business class and 246 economy seats, all of which are equipped with Ethiopian's renowned audio-visual inflight entertainment consoles.

Passengers will be able to connect between New York-Newark and many cities throughout Africa. At Lome, passengers will enjoy seamless connections to/from points in West Africa with ASKY, Ethiopian partner airline based in Lome.

I would like to thank all who strived hard to make the route possible."
