Addis Ababa Airport Reviews

Même les longs courriers ne sont pas tous au contact et l'aéroport n'a pas les moyens de ses ambitions de hub avec des capacités d'accueil trop limitées par rapport aux correspondances offertes. Des contrôles de sécurité très tatillons (on vous fera enlever vos sandales) et inutilement multipliés. Mais l'efficacité est là.
- Francois-Marie Perrin

(from 2012) - depends which terminal you end up in. The old one is not so good...the new one is brilliant and I was happy to spend the 4 hour layover browsing around or grabbing a drink in the bar. Clean, efficient and friendly staff.
- Alex Djaferis

The boarding was chaos and out of control. the passengers were just rushed down to the gate, not priority for business class passengers. A very bad experience I never experienced in my travels before....
- Chris

For a big transit hub it's a shocker. About 6 toilets to serve the whole terminal. There's no wifi or any food or retailers beyond security. Bring manual entertainment if you have a long wait
- Hugh

The most painstaking hub you'll ever visit. Just a handful of toilets, no internet except in one pricey cafe in departures, and visa on arrival queue moves at a snails pace requiring about 3 different staff interactions per visa.
- Hugh

So disorganised. People going down escalators into queues that aren't moving and there's no stop button. Cafe staff at the London Cafe take an eternity to serve your food, utensils and Bill.
- Hugh

Nightmarish to transit in. If in transit for over 8 hours on Ethiopian, you are eligible for a hotel and free entry visa. Fort the free entry visa, you need to get a green voucher on the Ethiopian transfer desk. Request hotel voucher at departure airport. In Addis request to have your passport stamped, and don`t get to the visa on arrival line. Some of the staff have no clue of their own processes, beware. Also, the only currency accepted airside is USD. No working wifi throught the airport.
- JWalker

no (working) free wifi, only one restaurant brand (with 3 identical restaurants 50m from each other)
- dm-photo

Awful airport. Worst ive been to out of 86 airports. Delayed flight, no info. No seats. Overcrowded.
- Ville Grandin

Poor airport, a shame as Ethiopian aren't a terrible airline however due to this airport I would not fly with them via Addis again.
