Addis Ababa, considered to be the political capital of Africa, is the home of the African Union (AU) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). More than 95 embassies from all over the world have their missions here. This makes the capital of Ethiopia a city where one finds the highest concentration of embassies in the world after Washington DC, New York, and London.

Addis Ababa is easily accessible with daily flights to and from cities in Europe. Ethiopian Airlines, Lufthansa, Alitalia, Kenya Airways, Egypt Air, Saudia and others serve Addis Ababa. Perhaps what makes it unique is that the national carrier, Ethiopian Airlines, serves 22 other cities in Africa, making Addis the most accessible city on the continent.
