Hi Andre,

First of all, if this answer is not what you’re seeking, please do ask
for a clarification before rating and closing the question, so that I
might have the opportunity to be sure you are satisfied and have
received the information you need.

There is a quite a bit of specific data available on airports in
Ethiopia.  However, I was only able to obtain complete information on
two of the airports you listed, Bahar Dar and Makele.  The other two,
Indaselassie and Humera, aren’t listed in most of the free databases,
except for some very sketchy information, which I have included.

Below I’ve listed some links to Ethiopian civil aviation authorities. 
They don’t have email addresses, but you could write to the postal
address to request specific information on these airports.  There are
also a couple of fax numbers listed.

In addition, there are aeronautical charts and publications that
contain information for airports worldwide.  For Africa, they’re
called ONCs or Operational Navigation Charts.  Of course, you have to
pay for these, so I cannot access them in a search, but I have
included links to several sites that sell them if you’d like to
purchase the pertinent one(s).  In any case, it would be prudent to
contact each airport specifically and/or purchase current charts and
publications prior to any flight, as the data I’ve provided here is
for your information only and should not be relied upon for
navigational purposes.

As you may know, when searching for airport information it’s useful to
have both the three-letter identifier and, in some cases, also the
4-letter ICAO identifier. Here are links to two sites where you can
find those for Ethiopia:
