Ethiopian Airlines Opens High-Speed COVID-19 Testing Lab at Addis Ababa


With the growing demand for travel pass and other measures to improve the safety of travellers EthiopianAirlines has installed Rapid Testing Devices at its hub. This enables transit passengers to test and get the result before they get on their flights.


The airline has joined hands with BGI Health Ethiopia, a subsidiary of China’s biotech giant, the BGI Genomics Co., Ltd, to launch a high-end COVID-19 testing laboratory at its main hub and the continent’s busiest airport, Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.


This is contained in a release from the airline in Nigeria signed by the Country Manager Mr. Shimeles Arage. The statement said that the testing center is opened to revitalize the passengers’ business by creating a seamless travel experience that includes COVID-19 testing to passengers that are departing or transiting via Addis Ababa.


The state-of-the-art COVID-19 testing lab is equipped with cutting-edge technologies to provide quick and accurate testing for passengers. Currently, the lab has the capacity to carry out 1,000 COVID-19 tests a day with the potential to grow further after expansion.


Regular test results can be obtained within three hours, leading to a convenient travel arrangement by reducing waiting time for testing and result collection.


Further to significantly reducing the time and energy spent for testing, the launch of the testing center at the airport will elevate Ethiopian customer service and consolidate the airlines’ safety measures at the airport and onboard.


Timeliness of COVID-19 test results has been an issue of concern for passengers who wish to transit or extend their stay in Ethiopia and the provision of testing at the airport simplifies customers’ journey with Ethiopian.


The laboratory -performs RT-PCR and IgM antibody tests for COVID-19 to departing, arriving, and transit passengers with a high level of efficiency in delivering the results. As a result, Ethiopian hopes to see a revival of passenger traffic following the move.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
