What potential routes are there from London to the Middle East, Africa and the CIS? I don't know how viable these would be, but here's a list of possibilities:

Baghdad
Basra
Kabul
Killimanjaro (hmm)
Kano
Sana'a
Dushanbe (used to be served four- or five-times weekly from LHR using Tristars, some of which routed via BHX. There must be people in the UK from Tajikistan. Perhaps BMed could route, say, Heathrow-Baku-Dushanbe?)
Dammam
Kishinev/Chisineu
Astana
Tirana
Sarajevo

I would have added Banghazi to the list, but LN now operates once-weekly from there to LHR.

I see that Samarkand is now being served once-weekly, non-stop by Uzbekistan, routing LHR-Samarkand-TAS, using the 763.

Nigeria Airways LOS-LHR-LOS flights used to make a stop in Kano twice a week. Virgin could do well adding a Kano stop on their LGW-PHC flights, possibly just once a week.

I'm surprised there are no flights to Sarajevo! Not even from LGW/STN?

Kilimanjaro would probably do well with tourist traffic--it's the gateway to the northern Tanzania safari circuit (the Serengeti, etc.). As far as I know, KLM's AMS-JRO-DAR-AMS flight is currently the only flight there from Europe, and it seems profitable, given that they are expanding to daily. So it doesn't seem like it would be unreasonable for BA to add it onto their DAR flights a couple of times a week.

Flybosnia will start flights to Sarajevo from both Manchester and Gatwick, prices from £199! Mostar could very well be added at asome stage, Travel Weekly and TTG both mentioned this.

Tripoli in Lebanon is only 50-60 miles north of Beirut and there's a great highway connecting to the capital.

The airport is not used at present but I will believe one day it will be good for LCCs in the region and maybe to Europe.

Regards.

It's north to the city as you say but can't give you the exact distance. You must know better though since you say you have used it. Were there any facilities?
