Nouakchott Airport

Nouakchott International Airport, also referred to simply as Nouakchott Airport, is situated in Nouakchott, the capital city of Mauritania, a country in the western region of the African continent. While the airport is the largest international terminal in Mauritania, it is still currently only quite small and has limited facilities. However, a new airport is currently under construction so this will change in time. Currently the airport sits around 4km from the city centre, and acts as the hub for the country’s own Mauritania Airways.  

This information is correct as of March 2016.
