Ethiopian Airlines added new Direct flights Chicago USA to JRO Kilimanjaro International Airport Via Addis Ababa, while Turkish airlines have increased direct flights Istanbul – Zanzibar –Istanbul flights will be increased from 3 flights to 5 flight.
The flight to Chicago operates on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, while the flights back to Addis Ababa operates on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The total distance of the route is ~7,600 miles, so this is an ultra longhaul flight. The westbound flight is blocked at 17hr40min (including the one hour in Dublin), while the eastbound flight is blocked at 13hr45min.
The new route will be operated by a Boeing 787-8, featuring 24 business class seats and 246 economy seats. Some of Ethiopian’s 787s have fully flat beds in business class, while others have angled seats, as they haven’t finished reconfiguring their entire fleet. Here’s a review I wrote of their “old” 787 business class, from a flight between Beijing and Addis Ababa.
