Upon arrival at the departure or return airport, the passenger must go to the check-in counter to validate their electronic ticket in order to be able to board the aircraft.

The check-in counters generally close an average of one hour before boarding which corresponds to the time indicated on the electronic ticket, however this period may vary depending on the destination or the airline. It is best to check with Ethiopian Airlines in advance to ensure check-in times before boarding. It is generally necessary to allow two hours before boarding airplanes for long-haul or international flights, and one hour for domestic or medium-haul flights (For example, within the European Union).

Access on board may be refused if you arrive late at the check-in desk even if the plane is scheduled to depart one hour after your arrival. Boarding times have been extended for groups, unaccompanied children, passengers with reduced mobility and travelers accompanied by an animal; they must arrive between thirty minutes and an additional hour before the check-in deadline.
