Mano Dayak International Airport

Situated in Agadez, Niger, this is the closest airport to Arlit. However, flight options from Agadez to Arlit are sporadic, and onward travel will likely involve a significant overland journey. Exploring private charter flight options might be necessary.


Diori Hamani International Airport

Located in Niamey, the capital of Niger, this airport offers the widest international and domestic connections within the country. Arriving here means connecting to a smaller flight to Agadez (likely via Mano Dayak International Airport) and ultimately a long ground journey to Arlit.
