Addis Ababa Airport to use bar coded boarding passes

Addis Ababa Bole International Airport is to become the first airport in Africa to fully operate bar-coded boarding passes (BCBP) for all international and domestic flights, two years ahead of the IATA deadline of 2010, Panapress reports Tuesday.
