Cheap flights from Somalia

Somalia, officially the Federal Republic of Somalia, located in the Horn of Africa, is bordered by Ethiopia to the west, Djibouti to the northwest, the Gulf of Aden to the north, the Indian Ocean to the east, and Kenya to the southwest. Somalia has the longest coastline on the continent’s mainland, and the country’s terrain is characterised by plateaus, plains, and highlands. Somalia’s capital and largest city is Mogadishu.

Where to go

From the main airport of Somalia, get to other cities within the country such as Berbera, Galkayo, and Hargeisa. After the capital Mogadishu, the second largest city in Somalia is Hargeisa. The city is also the capital of Somaliland, a self-declared republic that is internationally recognised as an autonomous region of Somalia. Attractions in Hargeisa include rock art from the Neolithic period as well as the bustling market in the city centre. In the outskirts of the city is an interesting camel market that is worth checking out. In the countryside outside Hargeisa, there is the Laas Gaal, which is a complex of caves and rock shelters home to well-preserved cave paintings. Near Hargeisa are also the Sheikh and Daallo mountains that house plenty of wildlife.

Aden Adde International Airport in Mogadishu, Somalia operates flights to short-haul destinations including Dubai, Jeddah, Nairobi, Aden, Djibouti, Al Mukalla, Sana’a, Sharjah, Wajir, and Istanbul. Sana’a in Yemen is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, as well as one of the highest capital cities in the world, at an altitude of 2,300 metres or 7,500 feet. Sana’a is divided into the Old City District and the new city. A must-visit for its architectural characteristics, with multi-storey buildings decorated with geometric patterns, the Old City District is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also home to the Great Mosque of Sana’a, the largest mosque in the city. The Old City District is fortified by ancient clay walls, enclosing over 100 mosques, 12 hammams, and about 6,500 houses, many of which resemble old skyscrapers with flat roofs. Another popular attraction within the district is the Suq al-Milh (Salt Market), the Bab al-Yaman (Yemen Gate), and the Al Madina, as well as three parks and the President’s palace.
