Turkish Airlines is currently offering discounted tickets for flight between Amsterdam and Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Tickets for a round-trip with the Star Alliance carrier are available at €347. Not only is that extremely cheap, but even more so considering a baggage allowance of 46 kg!
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s current immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
Your trip will always include one layover in Istanbul. From there, Turkish Airlines will fly you to Ethiopia onboard a Boeing 737.

Search & Book
Sadly, we weren’t able to find the fare rules for this deal. It does, however, seem to be the case, that your trip has to include a Sunday and commence before March 31st, 2021. You could use Google Flights to search for availability, but we recommend using our availability calendar above, as it will redirect you to Turkish Airline’s booking site.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend to book with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
The booking class in which the tickets are issued in U. As a result, there’s not much you can look forward to in terms of earning miles. Merely Turkish Airlines’ own program, Miles&Smiles, will give you 1,830 miles.
