Ethiopian delays the launch of the Istanbul route to March 2019

Ethiopian Airlines has announced a delay in its new route between Addis Ababa and Istanbul, which had been originally planned for December 5, 2018.

The route has now been postponed to March 4, 2019 due to the delay in the issuance of operating permit and landing slots by the Turkish Aviation Authorities, although Ethiopian has duly finalized all preparations to start the flights. Ethiopian Airlines regrets this unexpected delay.
