Passengers travelling through Addis Ababa Bole International Airport are to be offered access to free wireless internet. A representative from Ethiopian Airport Enterprise (EAE) stated that the service will be up and running before November. The initiative, supported by the country's Information Network Security Agency (INSA) and the Ethiopian Information Communications Technology Development Agency (EICTDA), will see the provision of wireless internet access in both the old and new terminals.

Bole International Airport, which is the busiest airport in East Africa, serves as the principle international gateway for Ethiopia. Situated 18 km east of Addis Ababa, it is the headquarters of the national carrier Ethiopian Airlines which offers routes throughout the African continent as well as services to Asia, Europe and North America. The airport is also one of Africa's main pilot training and aircraft maintenance centres.
