Security Message: Commercial Air Availability from Addis Ababa
The security environment in Ethiopia remains very fluid. The U.S. Embassy urges
U.S citizens in Ethiopia to depart now using commercially available options. The
U.S. Embassy is unlikely to be able to assist U.S. citizens in Ethiopia with
departure if commercial options become unavailable. Please see information on
What the Department of State Can and Can’t Do in a Crisis.
U.S. citizens wishing to depart Ethiopia, currently have multiple options via
commercial flights from Bole International Airport. If you have difficulty securing
a flight or need assistance to return to the United States, please contact
AddisACS@state.gov for guidance. The Embassy can also provide a repatriation
loan for U.S. citizens who cannot afford at this time to purchase a commercial
ticket to the United States.
Please see contact information for airlines operating from Bole International
