Inexpensive flight to Addis Abbaba

I need to travel to Addis Abbaba Ethiopia probably within 6 mos to pick up my son that I am in the process of adopting, and am having a hard time finding a reasonably priced ticket. Are there any suggestions for search engines that may be useful or another destination I could fly to nearby? and then go on to Addis Abbaba

I am afraid there are no reasonably priced tickets. That is the price you have to pay for having to travel to an obscure destination. I do not know where you are coming from but in the past I have always flown to Addis via Nairobi. Good luck!

Ethiopian Airlines has had decent rates in the past. Try them or British Airways.

Congratulations on your adoption! Being married to an Ethiopian and having visited orphanages in Addis, I've considered this myself and would love to hear more about your experiences. Good news - I don't know where you're flying from, but you can save considerably by buying 2 tickets, from US to London and London to Addis. We did it last summer. I checked for you. Boston/Heathrow is $303 in November and December on British Airways or Virgin. Heathrow/Addis is $598 on Lufthansa in October, November & December, a total of $901 (Great Price!) Ethiopian airlines charges $1,357 on their website, I have gotten lower fares from them by calling their US headquarters in New York City. I have also used other booking engines and consolidators from London that I could give you more info on, but it will be hard to beat $900. Feel free to email me [email protected]
Best of luck!
