Ethiopian Airlines Launches New Washington D.C. To Lomé, Togo Route

June 1, 2022
New service offers more frequent and convenient access from the nation’s capital to West African cities and beyond.

Wednesday, June 1, Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) begins nonstop flights from Dulles International Airport (IAD) to Lomé, Togo (LFW). With the inaugural flight lifting off today, June 1, 2022, the route will be operated three times a week providing more flight options and convenient connections to the rest of Africa. The new service between IAD and LFW will help link Ethiopian’s network of US passengers throughout Africa.

“As passenger demand recovers, we are thrilled to offer this new route from our nation’s capital to West Africa,” said Samson Arega, USA regional director at Ethiopian. “This direct flight is an attestation to the commitment that we have for our valued American passengers, to conveniently connect and provide hassle free air services, as part of strategic market expansion in the U.S.”

“Today commemorates an important milestone in our seventeen-year history with our partners at Ethiopian Airlines.,” said Paul Bobson, vice president, airline business development at The Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority (MWAA). “The inaugural flight to Lomé, Togo – famous for the friendliness of its people and the beauty of its countryside – represents the 40th global capital city served by Washington Dulles International Airport. This new route complements Ethiopian’s existing daily service to Addis Ababa from Dulles. As the only North American market with daily service on Ethiopian, we are thrilled to offer this new non-stop opportunity to the Gulf of Guinea and points beyond in all continental Africa to our local capital region community.”

The schedule for the new service, effective June 1, 2022, is as follows: 

In addition to the new flights through IAD, Ethiopian has four passenger routes to the US, all operating outbound via Dublin or Lomé to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). In a typical month, Ethiopian services 21 weekly bookable departures to Africa from the US, more than any other airline.

A proud member of Star Alliance, Ethiopian currently operates more than 128 of the youngest and most modern fleet with service to 62 cities in Africa and more than 127 international passenger and cargo destinations across five continents.
