Getting to ACCA by Air

Fly with Ethiopian Airlines. However, ticket prices are markedly less expensive when booked from a ticket office in Ethiopia. Ethiopian Airlines flies the historic circuit between Addis Ababa, Gonder, Lalibela and Axum daily. The Gonder airport is about 20km from the center of town. From the airport, you can either hire a taxi or make prior arrangements with a Gonder-based tour operator. Taxi prices are not set but at the time of writing 100-150 birr is fair.

Tickets prices purchased inside the country are heavily reduced from the prices marked on their website. There are ticket offices throughout Addis and all other cities where they fly. 

Tickets should be confirmed at the office.

The nearest airport to ACCA is in Lalibela.
