Ethiopian cancels proposed Chennai flight

Ethiopian has silently withdrawn Chennai-Addis Ababa flight.

Ethiopian airlines had announced this service to begin from April 2020 and had set a return fare of almost 60000 INR for a MAA-ADD return ticket in economy class. I had written about this earlier as this fare was too high.

Ethiopian had originally planned a dreamliner for this route. Later it was downgraded to 737.

Now it looks like the direct flight option is withdrawn. No official response on this-
  • Possibly because of Coronavirus scare Ethiopian is putting new routes on hold? If situation improves may be Ethiopian will reintroduce.
  • Possibly not many people booked flights on Ethiopian- mostly because of very high fares (60k we can go to Europe, US, Australia etc)
  • Possibly some other reason
Bengaluru-ADD flight is continuing as usual. Will keep an eye on this.
