Ethiopian Airlines inaugurated state-of-the-art passenger terminal and its Skylight Hotel on January 27, 2019
In attendance were Ethiopian Prime Minister H.E. Dr Abiy Ahmed, AU Chairperson H.E. Mr Moussa Faki, Ministers, high level government officials, Ethiopian Board Members and Group CEO Mr Tewolde GebreMariam, Executive Management Members and invited guests.
While Addis Ababa Airport took over Dubai as the largest air transport hub between Africa and the rest of the world, this grand terminal building is further evidence of the development of Bole Airport as one of the largest and most convenient global aviation hubs.
The new passenger terminal features the latest technology security systems, self-check-in machines, self-boarding system, comfortable lounges, duty free shops and other amenities.
Ethiopian Skylight Hotel will enable the airline to offer packaged tour and travel programs as well as to attract around a third of tourists out of the 6 million passengers transiting through Bole Airport to visit Ethiopia.
Ethiopian Skylight Hotel has around 373 guest rooms and executive suites, the largest Chinese restaurant in Africa and a conference hall that can accommodate 2,500 people, among others.
