With the launch of this new route, LAX will become one of only two airports in the world to serve six continents with nonstop flights, joining London-Heathrow in this distinction.
LAX will be the only U.S. west coast gateway airport with nonstop service to Africa.
Ethiopian Airlines will service this new route using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the most technologically advanced aircraft available.
