Ethiopia - Bole Airport to move regional flights to Terminal 1

nazret.com - Addis Ababa Bole International Airport said it will move regional flights to Terminal 1 formerly used exclusively as domestic terminal by Ethiopian Airlines. Airport General Manager, Hailay Gebretsadik told journalist that the terminal set aside for Eastern African flights would help to ease the air traffic congestion in the airport.

The manager said the airport has renovated the domestic terminal at a cost of 130 million Birr to prepare for the move. Accordingly passengers to and from Sana, Khartoum, Juba, Malakal, Nairobi, Mombasa, Djibouti, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro, Bujumbura, Entebbe and Kigali will use Terminal 1. All long haul and medium range flights will continue to operate from the newer Terminal 2.

The Ethiopian Airports Enterprise Communication and Public Relations Head, Womdem Teklu on his part said the airport accommodates more than 42,000 aircraft a year.

The airport has two terminals with a total of 12 gates. Terminal 1 has 5 gates and Terminal 2 has 7 gates. Bole International is served by bmi, EgyptAir, Emirates, KLM, Kenya Airways, Lufthansa, Sudan Airways, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Turkish Airlines and Yemenia. It is one of the busiest airports in Africa with 3,497,847 passengers recorded in 2009

Hey Death to Weyane,

What do you know about plane anyways. You don’t even have a healthy camel in your fake state called” Eritrea. You should mine your own stupid camels instead of our big business. Listen that is for Ethiopia okay?

Where is terminal 1? hopefully not in TIGRAY. I don’t think this is a good move for EAL.

The more you say negative things about tigres the more you empower them. I don’t understand why all this people are hating on tigres I mean the government in place is not worse than previous ones. And if I’m labeled as a cadre or woyane for saying this so be it, cause at the end of the day it’s better to be called a woyane than “serafete”

jumbo, kibrom, Debteraw9…what are you really saying?? Tigreans are not Ethiopian and should not hold any higher posts? I think most of them are not holding their current positions not because of their ethnic group alone, rather capability and I would prefer them for running it efficiently.
Animal: According to a 2009 report, with the two terminals the airport has total 11 gates out of which 5 gates is of Terminal 1 and 6 gates of Terminal 2. We need some updates here.
zi:It is all clearly stated that both Terminals we are talking about are at the ADD location and I do not know why are you splitting hair?

Nazretoch, why you guys post day to day activity of EAL & the airport, I know EAL is the only company the country is proud of, but, there are other companies (governmental or non governmental) in the country whose news matter to the regular people more than just the change of terminals or disputes between flight crew and thier bosses.

Good job on your choice of person of the year.

Semyeleshe,

You are paying too much attention to too many ignorant, stupid, idiots and blind haters. I know it is hard to ignore when you read many nonsensical comments, but give it a try.
