    Airports in Ethiopia

    The most prominent airport in Ethiopia is Bole International, in Addis Ababa (HAAB). While there are other airports in the country too, aircraft operators tend to use HAAB, because of service limitations and airport curfews in other airports. Also, the majority of flights fly to HAAB, because of being Ethiopia’s only 24/7 airport of entry (AOE).
