Hi all. I'm inching my way back home from Central Americas, just to catch rumours that my last leg from Addis to FACT might face closed doors on Friday 27th .... any factual info out there?

Hi Outsider,

The whole country is been locked down for 21 days on Thursday (23:59 Thursday as I understand it) this will practically close all the airports to commercial flights.

Good luck.
