Ethiopian Airlines temporarily suspends UK flights

Due to the inclusion of Ethiopia on the red list from Friday 19 March 2021, Ethiopian Airlines has made necessary adjustments to its UK (Heathrow and Manchester) operations. 

The airline will continue to operate cargo-only flights into Heathrow and Manchester and shall continue to operate passenger flights from Heathrow and Manchester.  These flights can be sold as normal through GDS for outbound travel – return journeys can currently be booked for travel on/after 1st May 2021, in line with conditions stated below.  

Effective 19th March 2021, foreign nationals travelling from/via Addis Ababa to the UK will not be accepted for travel to Heathrow and/or Manchester – this includes transit passengers who might only be passing through Ethiopia’s Bole International Airport.  In addition, British nationals who are still allowed to travel or transit through Addis Ababa to UK (not on ET direct services) will be forced into mandatory hotel quarantine for 10-days and at a cost of £1,750 per person, per current UK government regulations.
