Your journey from Dubai to Addis Ababa


Your journey to Ethiopia will start at Dubai International Airport (DXB). To get to the airport, you can organise a private transfer or drive there yourself – there is plenty of parking available at the airport. You can also make use of public transport and take the Dubai Metro to the nearby Abu Hail station, or simply jump on a bus.

When you arrive at the airport, head to our check-in desks, where a member of our team will be happy to welcome you. You can also head to a self-service check-in kiosk. To make the whole process smoother, you can check in online between 48 hours and 90 minutes before you’re due to fly. We’ve also rolled out mobile boarding passes for a streamlined, paperless experience.

Once you’ve dropped your bags and gone through security, it’s simply a matter of relaxing ahead of your boarding call - and there’s no better place to do that than Dubai International Airport. Packed with shops, restaurants, and cafes, there’s plenty to keep you busy.

When you arrive in Ethiopia, you’ll touch down at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport (ADD). The airport is just a short 5km journey from the city. You can get to the centre by organising a private transfer, catching a taxi or hiring a car from a local provider.
