I'm going to travel from Mumbai to Durban on Ethopian airlines. It is my first time traveling alone. My layover in Addis Ababa is only 40 minutes. Do I need to collect my luggage in Addis?

  • @RugDealer do you object to "min" as well, or only to "plz"? – phoog Jul 28 '16 at 12:24

  • @GeetanjaliNileshMaharaj Don't worry too much about it. We have had some questions posted that were much harder to work with than yours. Welcome to the site! If you have any other questions about your first-time travel, if they're not already answered here, please post them. – phoog Jul 28 '16 at 14:03

I just had a layover in Addis a few days ago. You do not necessarily have to collect your luggage there. Confirm this with the airline agent when you check your bag(s). The destination ticket should indicate Durban airport (DUR).

In addition, I can confirm that for an international transit, you do not need to clear Ethiopian immigration controls.
