Region: Africa : Central/Western Africa


The distances in Mauritania are enormous; the conditions of the roads are often bad and many towns are not reachable by paved roads, thus a large number of people fly. The two main international airports are - Nouakchott International Airport (NKC) and Nouadhibou International Airport (NDB) to which Royal Air Moroc, Air Afrique and Iberia fly. Mauritania’s domestic airline was Air Mauritanie, however it ceased operations in 2007, which was replaced by Mauritania Airlines International, which is now the flag carrier for the country. Some desert towns are also reachable by charter flights from Algiers on Air Algerie and from Paris on Air France. The Mauritania Civil Aviation Authority is the authority in control of the aviation industry in the country.
