Lufthansa to fly non-stop five times a week from Addis Ababa to Frankfurt


From Tuesday March 20, travelers can book Lufthansa’s new non-stop flights between Addis Ababa and Frankfurt. The enhanced service reduces the trip time to Europe to just 6 hours 45 minutes, as it no longer has a stopover in Jeddah.
“We are delighted to now offer our passengers a fast non-stop connection between Addis Ababa and Frankfurt. Lufthansa wants to be part of Ethiopia’s growing market and continued success story“, says Tobias Ernst, General Manager Sales Regional East Africa Lufthansa Group.
Passengers coming from Addis Ababa will now travel on a more convenient schedule with full connectivity in Europe and the North Atlantic market due to the early arrival in Frankfurt. Going inbound to Addis Ababa, passengers will have more time catching the flight to Ethiopia’s capital. The service will be offered daily in the early morning at 00:55, except for on Mondays and Wednesdays.
An Airbus A340-300 will operate the route with a configuration of 30 Business Class, 28 Premium Economy and 221 Economy Class seats. Passengers booked on a non-flight date will be contacted and rebooked. This flight is also a codeshare flight with Ethiopian Airlines.
