ADDIS ABABA, Dec. 14, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- The Ethiopian Airports Enterprise (EAE) has hired China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) Addis Engineering to expand the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.

Both companies on Tuesday signed a construction agreement valued at 1.1 billion Birr (about 66.7 million U.S. dollars) to expand the airport's aircraft parking area and taxiway and restore the existing running way.

EAE Director General Shiferaw Alemu and CRBC Addis Engineering General Manager Wang Yang signed the agreement.

Shiferaw said EAE will cover the total costs for the projects.

When the projects are finished, the airport will be able to park 44 aircraft, as compared to the 19 aircraft it can currently hold, he said.

Shiferaw also said the airport will be able to park large aircraft, including Boeing (NYSE:BA) 747 and Boeing 777 after the expansion.
