Your journey by airplane

Bayanga has an airstrip consisting of a very good laterite runway of 1,4km length. To get there you have to rent a propeller aircraft. This can be done in Bangui (CAR), Yaounde and Douala (Cameroon), as well as in Libreville (Gabon). The closest international airport is Bangui, 520 km from Bayanga.

Currently, there are 3 flights per week from Europe:

  - One direct flight from Paris to Bangui operated by Air France, arriving at Bangui Thursdays
     at 5.30 am
  - Two flights via Tripoli, operated by Afriqiyah Airways, arriving at Bangui Sundays and
     Wednesdays at 11.30 pm.    Destinations in Europe currently are Paris, London, Brussels
    and Düsseldorf.
  - Douala and Yaoundé are well connected with Europe with flights taking place on a daily
    basis. There are two airlines that offer flights from Douala/Yaoundé to Bangui: Toumai (Air
    Tchad) and TAAG (Angola).

To reach Bangui by car takes 2 to 3 days from Yaoundé and a four-wheel drive is highly recommended.
