Addis Ababa Bole International Airport

Ethiopian Airlines’ main hub is Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, one of Africa’s largest airports. On January 21, 2003, the ultra-modern airport terminal was opened. With its sophisticated amenities, this large terminal handles all international flights.

Boarding rooms, lounges, entertainment centers, shopping malls, offices, and other amenities will be housed in the new terminal. The extension project includes new boarding gates, boarding bridges, and parking places. Passengers and employees will both benefit from the expanded parking lot.
