With the help of funding from a United States foreign aid agency, the airport was upgraded in 2017. Several regional airlines use this airport and one can fly farther afield to Europe with Air France and to Turkey with Turkish Airlines.
Although the airport is well organised and taxis are available outside, many travellers suggest it is better to take your own food, water and avoid changing money at the airport.
The republic of Mali has a population of 18.5 million people. Being a landlocked country, it shares its border with Niger, Algeria, Mauritiana and Burkina Faso. Mali is full of beauty and wonderful things to see. Unfortunately, much of the beautiful landscape is not accessible to tourist due to present conflicts. Etiquette in this country is important and one thing to remember is always to be patient, don’t photograph people, be very respectful of the Islamic traditions that are practiced here. There are many wonderful things one can do here including taking a 4 day camel trek through the scenic Atlas Mountains or pass through the gorges of Dades Valley. Food in Mali can be very tasty, especially Jollof Rice, served sometimes with meat and fish. Mali is un unstable country presently and all tourists should remain vigilant at all times.
