Arriving In Niger

The main international airport in Niger is Diori Hamani International Airport which is located less than 10 km outside of the capital Niamey. The airport handles a variety of regional flights as well as some longer routes, although currently there are no airlines providing direct flights from the UAE to Niger. However, the airport has plenty of connections which enables UAE-based travelers to fly to Niger with only a single transfer, making the journey a lot more convenient.

Diori Hamani International Airport is set within a single terminal and offers only a small range of amenities and services. At the airport you can find a couple of eateries available to grab a bite to eat, while there are also a few small shops located around the airport to pick up some essentials. Once you have landed at the airport, the easiest way to travel into the city is to catch a taxi just outside of the airport.
