Ethiopia to build biggest air cargo hub in Africa

Ethiopian Airlines’ drive to become a global carrier is to be supported by the construction of a world-class cargo terminal at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.

The $98m terminal, which will be the size of five football grounds, is to be designed by German engineer Unitechnik Group.

According to Unitechnik, the new terminal will be able to handle 600,000 tonnes of freight a year: more than four times the capacity of the existing facility, which was built by the same firm in 2006.

After that, planning will begin on a further expansion to 1.2 million tonnes a year, making the terminal one of the largest in the world.
