Ethiopian Airlines (Addis Ababa) has announced it has finalized preparations to start flights to Dublin and Los Angeles starting in June 2015.
Ethiopian flights from Addis Ababa to Dublin and continuing on to Los Angeles will be operated three times a week with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The flights will be the only direct service connecting Africa with Ireland and the West Coast of the United States.

That is a nice routing for West Coast USA passengers going to the African continent particularly South Africa and Kenya. On your way, stop by one or two days in Dublin, have some Guinness, eat seafood and oysters (my favorite) then go onward to Johannesburg, Cape Town and see “the end of the world” in the African side (I’ve seen the one from the South America side). As Ethiopian Airlines is popular to budget travelers, I am sure that they will offer some good rates and discounts!
Thank you Clyde. Ireland is a great to stop-over. All the best.
