Cheap Flights to Bole

Bole overview

Addis Ababa Bole International Airport is Ethiopia’s sleek and modern face to the world, welcoming more than four million passengers per year, a number that makes it the third-busiest airport in Africa.

Bole Airport is conveniently situated 8km (5 miles) from Addis Ababa, a short drive in any of the multitude of taxis waiting outside the arrivals hall, or via the free hotel buses.

The domestic Terminal 1 was renovated and developed in 2003 and has five airline gates. The new international Terminal 2 is a hugely impressive structure, formed from soaring steel arches and glass sheeting, and opened in 2003, with seven airline gates. The terminal has three levels, its own parking facility, and many amenities for passengers arriving on flights to Addis Ababa Bole Airport from all over the world.

What the renovation hasn’t changed is the famous friendliness of the staff; or regrettably, the sluggish pace of the immigration officials. Nevertheless, Bole is a convenient and comfortable portal to and from the outside world, earning high praise from passengers.
