Addis Ababa Airport

With the British Foreign Office urging Britons to leave Ethiopia, air services at Addis Ababa Airport are being questioned.  Ethiopian Airlines continues to fly daily to Heathrow with Boeing 787 Dreamliners used on the route.

The US Federal Aviation Administration last week advised American carriers to exercise caution while flying into or near Addis Ababa, as a year-long war moves closer to the Ethiopian capital.

Called Bole locally the international Airport is one of the busiest in Africa.  State-owned Ethiopian Airlines is said to be the world’s fourth largest airline by the number of countries served. It has a fleet of around 130 aircraft including both the 787 and Airbus A350 and 32 de Havilland Q400 used on domestic services.  It is the many times winner of various Skytrax awards.  The airport-based training academy attracts airline customers from all over the globe.
