Ethiopian Airlines Group has completed a new passenger terminal at its hub in Addis Ababa Bole International Airport with emphasis on biosecurity and biosafety measures.
The new terminal has a check-in hall with 60 check-in counters, 30 self-check-in kiosks, 10 self-bag drop, 16 immigration counters with more e-gate provisions and 16 central security screening areas for departing passengers.
The terminal also has three contact gates for wide body aircraft along with 10 remote contact gates with people mover – travellator, escalator and panoramic lifts.
“It will house 32 arrival immigration counters with eight e-gate provisions at the Mezzanine floor level”, Mr Tewolde GebreMariam, the airline’s Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) said on Thursday.
“I am very pleased to witness the realisation 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.
