Ethiopian Airlines to Warsaw for the first time

Africa’s largest network carrier inaugurated scheduled flights from Addis Ababa to Warsaw. They are operated by Athens four times a week from July 1, 2024. The first takeoff from Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport was accompanied by a ceremony attended by the Polish ambassador to Ethiopia, senior Ethiopian government officials and Ethiopian Airlines executives. In Warsaw, the first passengers on the route also received a ceremonial welcome.

Referring to the launch of the new route, Mr. Mesfin Tasew, Chief Executive Officer of Ethiopian Airlines Group said, “We are truly pleased to establish yet another connection between Africa and Central Europe with the flight that we have commenced today to Warsaw, Poland. We are committed to enhance our passengers’ convenience in traveling across the globe in a seamless connection, and we are proud to take our African Flavored Ethiopian Hospitality services further to Poland.”

With the launch of the new route, Warsaw will be Ethiopian Airlines’ 24th connection in Europe.

The service will operate according to the following schedule

ET 764 Addis Ababa (ADD) – Athens (ATH) – Warsaw (WAW) Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday

ET 765 Warsaw (WAW) – Athens (ATH) – Addis Ababa (ADD) Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.

The route will be served by Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

This will change in the upcoming winter season. Starting October 27, Ethiopian Airlines planes will fly to Warsaw via Vienna instead of Athens. This route will be served by much larger and more comfortable Airbus A350s. Flight ET 730 will take off from Addis Ababa at 1:10 a.m., landing at Chopin Airport at 8:10 a.m. The return will leave Warsaw at 8:10 p.m. to land in Addis Ababa in the morning, at 6:50 a.m. the following day, this will be flight ET 731.

The flight time from Warsaw to Ethiopia will be shortened to 8 hours 20 minutes including a stopover in the Austrian capital. This connection will operate three times a week: on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Ethiopian flies to Vienna daily, meaning that only some of the flights to Warsaw have been extended.
