    Airport Enterprise eyes new facility for private airliners

    Date:

    The Ethiopian Airports Enterprise submitted a request to the Addis Ababa City Administration to access land located to the south of the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport for the construction of airport facility to be used mainly by privately operated airlines in Ethiopia.

    The Ethiopian Airports Enterprise, which is part of the newly formed Ethiopian Airlines Group, is reported to have submitted its formal request with the city administration, recently.

    According to Tewodros Dawit, CEO of the Enterprise, the Bole International Airport is currently serving mainly bigger carriers with scheduled regular flights to and from Addis Ababa such as the Ethiopian Airlines and other foreign airlines. Hence, locally operated private airlines are served in-between the scheduled flights and carriers.

    Although this is a common practice around the world, it has sure hindered the growth of private airlines in Ethiopia. Therefore, Tewodros is of the view that separate airport facility is the way to go and that his institution has submitted formal request to access the land adjacent to the Bole International Airport.
