Ethiopia: Federal Aviation Administration - No Flights Warning for Ethiopia

The US Embassy in Addis Ababa notified that there have been no recent warnings by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) for flights in and out of Addis Ababa.

According to the statement, the last warning issued by the FAA predates June 18, 2000, cessation of hostilities between Eritrea and Ethiopia.

The FAA ADVISOR (KFDC A0012/97) pertaining to Ethiopia/Kenya dates to 2002.

The statement revealed that reports carried by some media outlets alleging that a new warning was issued on flights to Ethiopian territories after the MH17 accident in Ukrainian territories is wrong.

The Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) No.87 and the FAA advisories apply only to U.S air carriers or commercial operators, the statement said.
