Addis Ababa Bole International Airport (ADD)

Location: The airport is situated five miles (8km) from Addis Ababa.
Time: GMT +3.
Transfer between terminals: The terminals are close to each other, but a free shuttle service is available.
Getting to the city: Most hotels offer shuttle services from the airport, however these should be booked in advance. Local minibuses are also available but these tend to be crowded and can be uncomfortable with luggage.
Car rental: Car rental is available at the airport.
Airport Taxis: To avoid haggling and overpricing, travellers should use the yellow/cream coloured government taxis parked at the terminal. These are more comfortable and reliable than the unofficial blue and white cabs. Passengers should make sure to agree on a fee with the driver before starting their journey.

Parking: Public parking is located near the entrances of each terminal.
