Airport departure tax?

We are tavelling to Zanzibar next week. browsing through the forum I came across mixed information about so called "Airport departure tax". We are flying out with Ethiopian Airlines to Frankfurt via Addis Ababa. Sound we expect to be charged such tax? how much is it per person. Hope to get some current info. Thanks

It should be included in the ticket price but sometimes its not. You need to check with the ticket seller.

A few years ago it was about 30US dollars.

From Zanzibar if you are taking an international flight it will be $35 dollars which most of the times is included in the tickets because the government as appointed airlines as collectiing agents for the taxes.

We flew out two weeks ago on Turkish Airlines to Istanbul and onto London. The departure tax was included in the ticket price and we were not asked to pay anything at the airport.

Departure taxes are included in all international tickets by law. Even on the local air carriers, if they issue e-tickets, these taxes should be included.

Best though, verify with your air carrier, though even some e-tickets show what taxes are included if you can figure out these codes.
