Do I need a passport for flights within Algeria?
No, you don't need a passport to travel internally within Algeria. You will need some form of government-issued photo identification, though, such as a driving license.
How early do I need to arrive at the airport?
It's recommended that you arrive 3–2 hours before scheduled flight departure time for internal flights.
