In­creas­ing Tourist Ar­rivals

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

Tourist ar­rivals in Ethiopia in 2017 could reach 918,010, a 5.7-per­cent in­crease over 868,780 reg­is­tered in 2016, a re­port said.

More in­ter­na­tional routes opened by the na­tional air car­rier Ethiopian Air­lines (ET) con­trib­ute to the pro­jected growth, ac­cord­ing to the re­port re­leased by Bri­tish ac­count­ing watch­dog Price­wa­ter­house­coop­ers (PWC).

With a view to boost tourist ar­rivals in Ethiopia and in­crease ET’S do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional routes, Ad­dis Ababa Bole In­ter­na­tional Air­port is un­der­go­ing ex­pan­sion that will en­able it to sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease its an­nual pas­sen­ger han­dling ca­pac­ity.

Fully funded with a loan from the Ex­port-im­port Bank of China, the $345-mil­lion air­port ex­pan­sion project will in­crease its an­nual pas­sen­ger han­dling ca­pac­ity
