Cheap flights to Burundi

Reasons To Visit Burundi

Burundi is a relatively small country but offers a wealth of opportunities whether it’s exploring its stunning national parks or understanding more about the interesting heritage of the country. Many visitors come to Burundi to experience the breathtaking beauty of its wilderness - the country is home to a number of national parks like the Kibira National Park with its thriving wildlife or the mountainous Ruvubu National Park. Be sure to head into the capital Bujumbura where most of the country’s cultural institutions are found like the Musee Vivant, or spend the day relaxing on the beach taking in the sunshine.

Arriving In Burundi

The sole international airport serving Burundi is Bujumbura International Airport which is located less than 10 km away from the city center of the capital Bujumbura. The airport only handles a small array of flights, while travelers from the UAE looking to fly to Burundi will not be able to make the trip directly. However, it will be possible to travel with just a single stopover from the UAE to Burundi, making the trip a lot more convenient.

Bujumbura International Airport offers a small selection of amenities and facilities to meet the needs of travelers, although you may want to bring any essential items with you as options at the airport are quite limited. When your flight has touched down at the airport, the easiest way to get into the city is by taxi which will be relatively affordable given the short distance.
