Great news for Canadians planning to travel to Africa. Ethiopia's flag carrier, Ethiopian Airlines, will increase its service between Addis Ababa and Toronto. From 19 June 2013 the airline will operate three instead of two weekly flights between the two destinations on-board Boeing's 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. The outbound service will be operated via Rome (Italy), while the inbound service will be a direct flight.
Via Ethiopian Airlines' hub in Addis Ababa, travellers can easily get connected to other destinations serviced by the airline, such as Johannesburg (South Africa), Nairobi (Kenya), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Lusaka (Zambia) and Harare (Zimbabwe).
