Ethiopian Airlines, the fastest growing airline in Africa, is continuing its efforts to better connect Africa to the rest of the world by adding three new Asian destinations: Ho Chi Minh City, Manila and Seoul. These new destinations will be available to travelers as of June 18.

In addition to the expansion of Ethiopian Airlines’ Asian network, it will also be making some positive changes to already popular route between Addis Ababa and Hong Kong. Flights from Addis Ababa to Hong Kong will no longer need to stop in Bangkok. Instead, the service will be non-stop. Moreover, the flights will now be a daily service as opposed to four-times-a-week.

Also effective June 18, the daily Bangkok services will extend to Kuala Lumpur and to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Flights from Addis Ababa to Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur will increase from three weekly flights to four weekly flights, and three of the daily flights to Bangkok will extend to Ho Chi Minh using a 246-seat 767-300ER aircraft.
