The airline has its main hub in Addis Abeba but added West African hubs in the last 12 months on Abidjan (Ivory Coast) and expanded service form it’s Lome hub (Togo).

Which country will be next?

Nairobi’s hotel boom continues with a new Doubletree Nairobi in a not so ideal location

Redemptions are expensive at 25,000 Hilton Honors but there are plenty of $70 room rates.

– Turkish Airlines wants to compete with Ethiopian at every turn and now adds Moroni, Comoros with a three weekly service

If you are interested in redeeming miles look at Aegean miles (Transfer from Starwood) which charges just 50,000 miles one-way in Business Class plus $200 in fuel surcharges.
