27 August, 2020

Ethiopian Airlines Group, the Largest Aviation Group in Africa is pleased to announce that it 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 has check-in hall with sixty check-in counters, thirty self-check-in kiosks, ten self-bag  drop/SBD/,  sixteen  immigration  counters  with  more  e-gate  provisions,  sixteen  central security screening areas for departing passengers are the new faces of the airport. In addition, it has  three  contact  gates  for  wide  body  aircraft  along  with  ten  remote  contact  gates  with  people mover  -  travellator,  escalator,  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 remarked, “I am very pleased to witness the realization of a brand-new terminal at our Hub. While Addis Ababa Bole International Airport has overtaken Dubai to become the largest gateway to Africa last year, the new terminal will play a key role in cementing that position. What makes  the  new  terminal  unique  is  that  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. Ethiopian 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.
