Ethiopian Airlines unveils Bole International Airport’s new terminal
The new terminal is the first in the world to be completed after Covid-19. It was designed, not re-purposed, with Bio safety and Bio security in mind.
Ethiopian Airlines has successfully completed a new passenger terminal at its hub Addis Ababa Bole International Airport with emphasis on Bio Security and Bio Safety measures.
The new terminal check-in hall has sixty check-in counters, thirty self-check-in kiosks, ten self-bag drop, sixteen immigration counters with more e-gate provisions and sixteen central security screening areas for departing passengers, all of which comprise the new face of the airport.
In addition, it has three contact gates for wide body aircraft and ten remote contact gates with people movers – travellators, escalators and panoramic lifts. It will house thirty-two arrival immigration counters with eight e-gate provisions at the mezzanine floor level.
Regarding the expanded infrastructure, Mr Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines said, “I am very pleased to witness the realisation of a brand-new terminal at our Hub. While Addis Ababa Bole International Airport overtook Dubai as the largest gateway to Africa last year, the new terminal will play a key role in cementing that position. The new terminal is unique as it’s the first terminal in the world to be completed after Covid-19. It was designed, not re-purposed, with Bio safety and Bio security in mind. I’m sure our esteemed customers will highly appreciate that. “
Aviation infrastructure expansion is one of the core pillars of Ethiopian’s Vision 2025 and it is continuously working on expanding airport facilities. The features of the new airport play a key role in protecting passengers’ and employees’ safety as airport experience becomes contactless.
