Mauritania is a beautiful and diverse country located in Northwest Africa. It is known for its stunning landscapes, ancient culture, and welcoming people. For those in the aviation industry, Mauritania is a crucial hub that connects Africa to the rest of the world. In this article, we will explore the main airports in Mauritania, the visa procedures for crew members and International Flight Planning Solutions can provide all necessary services.
Mauritania has two main international airports: Nouakchott-Oumtounsy International Airport and Nouadhibou International Airport.
Nouakchott-Oumtounsy International Airport (NKC, GQNO) is the primary airport serving the capital city of Nouakchott. It is located approximately 25 kilometers north of the city center and features a single runway that can accommodate large aircraft. The airport has modern facilities, including duty-free shops, restaurants, and lounges, making it a comfortable stopover for passengers and crew alike.
Nouadhibou International Airport (NDB, GQPP) is located in the city of Nouadhibou and serves as the gateway to the country's mining industry. The airport has one runway and can accommodate a variety of aircraft, including cargo planes. The airport also features a VIP lounge and a small selection of shops and restaurants.
Mauritania requires crew members to obtain a visa before arriving in the country. The visa application process can be completed online through the country's e-visa portal. The process is straightforward and requires crew members to provide basic personal and travel information, as well as a passport-sized photo and a copy of their passport. Once the visa application is complete, the crew member will receive an e-visa via email, which they can present to immigration officials upon arrival in Mauritania. It is essential to note that the e-visa is only valid for a single entry and must be used within 90 days of the issue.
