New York (TADIAS) — This past weekend in Los Angeles, California Ethiopian Airlines inaugurated its newest route connecting America’s second largest city and Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa with a stopover in Dublin, Ireland.

Ethiopian Airlines, which already serves the East Coast with multiple flights per week to Washington, D.C., said that the new tri-continental flight is the first direct flight by an African airline linking Africa with the West Coast of the United States. Ethiopia‍‍’‍s flag carrier said it plans to fly to Los Angeles three times a week.

At a ceremony celebrating the launch of the new flight Tewolde Gebremariam, Chief Executive Officer of Ethiopian Airlines, noted that the thrice-a-week flights using Boeing 787 aircrafts created opportunities for Ethiopian and foreign investors from Ireland and the US to come and do business in the country. He added: “Ethiopia is the seat of the African Union (AU); the airline is striving to connect the continent with different parts of the world.”

Gold Star Aviation posted the following photograph on Twitter sharing: “Celebrating our first Tri-continent service aboard #B787 above 30,000 feet. #Dublin #LosAngeles #EthiopianAirlines.”
