Ethiopian Airports Enterprise to expand passengers’ terminal of Bole Airport

The Ethiopian Airports Enterprise said it will expand passengers’ terminal of the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport with an outlay of 250 million US dollars.

 Enterprise Deputy CEO, Tewodros Dawit told ENA on Monday that the expansion work of the terminal will be finalized in three years.
The expansion project will increase the capacity of the airport to provide service to 22 million passengers from the current seven million annually.

 He said the ever increasing air traffic flow to the country makes the expansion of the terminal necessary.
 According to him, the number of passengers, who get service at the airport, either to stay in the country or to transit, is increasing by over 35 percent annually on average.

 The airport is providing service to more than 110 aircrafts, which he said is beyond its capacity. These factors make essential the expansion of the passengers' terminal. Tewodros said the design study, being undertaken for the expansion project will be finalized within the coming four months.
 He said the fund for the expansion project will be secured in loan from international institutions and the government of China.
