Bangui (BGF) Airport

Fri Jun 30, 2006 10:52 am

In looking through schedules, it seems that there is almost no flight activity at Bangui, perhaps the fewest flights of any capital city in the world?

Why is this? I thought I had heard that AF had plans (now shelved) to set up some sort of base here?

What is going on at BGF?

Air France operates once a week an A330 (on fridays) with the next schedule:

AF-880 CDG-BGF 23:15 04:55+1
AF-883 BGF-CDG 22:20 06:00+1

Toumai Air Tchad, too, operates an F28 and DC9 to BZV, DLA, LFW, NDJ and ABJ

Cameroon Airlines operates F28 and 752 equipment to Bangui.

I remember one capital city, Thimpu in Bhutan that has not airport.

Thumphu uses the only airport available in Bhutan - Paro International...
2236m elevation (7335ft). Not sure how far away it is, but its in the next county.

Interesting to hear about the service into Bangui! Not the most stable country in Africa to fly into though.... !!!

I'd hazard a guess to say Pyongyang has less traffic than Bangui.

Yes, Pyongyang will win this competition.  Wink I flew out from there last Aug, though! Big grin

Then again, Monaco, Vatican etc. don't have an airport at all...
AY and ANA rock!
