Ethiopian Airlines has inaugurated the refurbished domestic terminal at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport

The $50m expansion and renovation project has significantly upgraded the terminal, more than doubling its size to 25,750m2 as well as doubling its handling capacity.

Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Mesfin Tasew said, “The domestic terminal expansion and renovation at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport is a significant addition to our programme of modernising and renovating airports and aviation facilities in the country. As the demand in domestic travel grows, the completion of this project would allow us to offer a smooth travel experience to our esteemed passengers.”

The newly inaugurated domestic terminal is the main connecting hub for Ethiopian domestic operations, serving more than 200 flights to and from the 22 domestic destinations on daily basis. The expanded terminal features modern airport systems and facilities including four contact gates, ten remote departure gates, 22 check-in counters with automated hold baggage screening system, self-check-in kiosks, modern security screening system, a premier passengers’ lounge and various other airport facilities and amenities. These enhancements will streamline passenger flow, improve comfort levels, and enhance the overall travel experience, the airline said.

The inauguration of the domestic terminal is the latest in a series of strategic investments by Ethiopian Airlines to enhance its infrastructure and services across the country. This strategic move plays a crucial role in fostering economic, social, and tourism integration, contributing to the overall development of Ethiopia, the airline said.
