Ethiopian Airlines has informed the United States Embassy in Accra, Ghana, that it is laying on a special commercial flight from Ghana to Ethiopia. The flight is scheduled for Thursday, August 13, and will depart from Kotoka International Airport (ACC) for Addis Ababa Bole International Airport (ADD). Once in Addis Ababa, United States citizens and legal permanent residents (LPRs ) will be able to connect to flights to the United States.
There are no quarantine requirements for transit passengers connecting through Addis Ababa at present. Before making a booking, you must speak with Ethiopian Airlines about your onward travel to the USA as seats may be limited.
The United States Embassy in Ghana was eager to point out in its press release that in no way was it involved in the select flight, saying: “This is not a U.S. Government-chartered or -funded flight. The embassy is neither arranging nor purchasing tickets for private U.S. citizens or LPRs and takes no responsibility for the ticketing process. Interested individuals should contact Ethiopian Airlines directly to obtain additional information.”
