30 minutes transit time

Hi all,

I am planning to fly Ethiopian Airlines from Mumbai to Cape Town via Addis Ababa airport. The layover/transit time is 30 minutes.

Is this doable?

Thanks,

Prerna

So should I book it? I spoke to the airline itself and they assured me that it is possible.

No transit visa needed...that would take more than the 30 mins.. Transit visas only issued to those leaving the airport!!

To travelerg..

Let the crew know you have only 30 mins.

They will know some people have v short time and will probably ask you to leave plane before others.

Assuming both planes on time..they will bus you plane to plane across the tarmac.PLEASE...give us a report after the event.Thanks...
