Credit/Debit Card Restrictions

Ethiopian Airlines accepts credit and debit cards when they are branded as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, China Union Pay, JCB and UATP. In addition Ethiopian airlines accept  local debit card and mobile payment from  some African countries. Elo and Hiper cards are also accepted from Brazil. 

ET does not accept Anonymous Prepaid cards

Please be advised that third party payment with credit/debit card through the internet is possible for individuals other than the card holder. However, for security reasons, the holder of the credit card may be contacted by email to verify the credit card used at the airport or at nearby Ethiopian ticket office for in person verification.

In countries where ET does not have a ticket office or general sales agent for card verification the card holders can authorize third party payment by filling the credit card authorization form. Please click here to view the Credit card Authorization form.  Then send the filled Authorization form to the first ET operating stations.Please use the following link to find all Ethiopian Airlines office address. Ethiopian Airlines office contact
