Flights To Mauritania

Mauritania has three international airports, Nouakchott International Airport serving the capital, Nouadhibou International Airport serving the northern port town of Nouadhibou and Atar International Airport service the central city of Atar.

The main international flights entering Mauritania do so via France on Air France and Mauritania Airways from Paris. Thereafter the capital is reasonably well served by local and regional flights with Mauritania Airways providing services to Abidjan, Bamako and Dakar. Tunis Air operates a service from Tunis, Royal Air Moroc from Casablanca, Air Senegal from Dakar and Air Algérie from Algiers.

A limited but fairly comprehensive internal domestic flight network exists.
