Airports near Akieni

There are multiple ways to reach Akieni - here are 4 airports you can use to get to Akieni.

Libreville Leon M'ba International Airport

This is the closest major international airport to Akieni, located approximately 400 kilometres northwest. It offers connections to various destinations in Africa and beyond, potentially providing lower fares and more flexibility. However, you'll need to factor in the additional ground transportation cost and time (approximately 7-8 hours by car) to reach Akieni.


Port-Gentil International Airport

Situated around 450 kilometres northwest of Akieni, this airport primarily serves domestic flights within Gabon, with limited international connections. While flight options might be fewer than Libreville, it could be a good alternative if you find a convenient connecting flight and prefer exploring Port-Gentil before reaching Akieni. Consider additional ground transportation costs and time (approximately 8-9 hours by car).


Libreville Port-Gentil International Airport

This smaller airport, closer to Port-Gentil than Libreville, operates mainly domestic flights but has a few international routes. If you find a suitable connecting flight and prioritize shorter ground transportation, this could be an option. Be prepared for potentially higher fares and fewer flight options compared to the larger airports. Expect about 6-7 hours by car to reach Akieni.


Douala International Airport

Douala, Cameroon's major airport, can be an alternative if you find better flight deals or prefer a different route. It has connections to major European and African cities and offers flights to Libreville or Port-Gentil, from where you can connect to Akieni. However, this option involves the longest travel time (approximately 9-10 hours by car from Libreville and 10-11 hours from Port-Gentil) and potentially higher costs due to additional connections.
