Ethiopian Airlines, the largest aviation group in Africa, has successfully completed a new passenger terminal at its hub in Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.
Putting emphasis on bio security and bio safety measures, the new terminal features a check-in hall with 60 check-in counters, 30 self-check-in kiosks, 10 self-bag drop/SBD/ facilities, 16 immigration counters with more e-gate provisions and 16 central security screening areas for departing passengers.
In addition, it has three contact gates for wide-body aircraft along with 10 remote contact gates with a moving walkway, escalator, and panoramic lifts.
Furthermore, the terminal will house 32 arrival immigration counters with eight e-gate provisions at the mezzanine floor level.
“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,” Tewolde GebreMariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, said.
“What makes the new terminal unique is that it’s the first terminal in the world to be completed after Covid-19,” he added.
Aviation infrastructure expansion is one of the core pillars of Ethiopian’s Vision 2025 program. Therefore, the airline has continuously been working to expand its airport facilities.
