Ethiopia Expands Addis Airport with New Terminal

Ethiopian Airlines has hosted a double celebration this week as they launched their new state-of-the-art passenger terminal at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport and officially opened their own brand new ultra-modern five-star Skylight Hotel.

At the inauguration ceremony, Group Chief Executive Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam stated, “While Addis Ababa Airport took over Dubai as the largest air transport hub between Africa and the rest of the world, this grand terminal building is further evidence of the development of Bole Airport as one of the largest and most convenient global aviation hubs.”

The new US$363 million passenger terminal will help to serve the huge increase in volume through and into the airport driven by its strategic location and Ethiopian Airlines convenient connectivity options.

The airport will now be able to accommodate 22 million passengers annually thanks to its additional 86,000 sqm in terminal two, 16,000 sqm in terminal one and 6,000 sqm for the new VIP terminal.

The terminal has a new check in hall with elevated motorway and many more international gates as well as check-in and immigration counters.

It also features the latest technology security systems, self-check-in machines, a self-boarding system, comfortable lounges, duty free shops, restaurants and lots more amenities.

Ethiopian Skylight Hotel offers much needed five-star accommodation to this fast-growing capital city.

Conveniently located adjacent to the airport, its unique aircraft shape design provides 373 guest rooms and spacious executive suites, four restaurants including the largest Chinese restaurant in Africa, two bars, a swimming pool, gym, health centre, café and gift shops.
