Ethiopian Airlines unveils Bole International Airport’s new terminal

28 Aug 2020

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.

Social distancing at check-in

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.

Fly with confidence. #FlyEthiopian!
