PlaneThe United States Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) has removed the prohibition that it placed on US carriers and commercial operators from overflying some parts of Ethiopia.

The ban was placed in 2000 for north of 12 degrees north latitude during the Ethiopia and Eritrea border conflict, the FAA says.

The removal of the ban was announced by the FAA yesterday February 4, 2015 and published in the Federal register Vol. 80, No. 23.

“This action removes the prohibition against certain flights within the territory and airspace of Ethiopia contained in Special Federal Aviation Regulation, (SFGAR) no. 87,” it says.
