African Airlines

African Airlines Per Country from Algeria to Guinea

By

African Airlines offer a valuable service to a continent that's large and doesn't have the best roads, especially during the rainy season. If you don't have a lot of time when you visit Africa you'll certainly use an African airline to get from place to place.

There are safety concerns with some African Airlines so do a little research before you book your holiday.

African Airlines can change month to month but you can usually count on the national airlines to stay in business for longer than that. If you have airline miles on a non-African airline, you may be able to use them with partner airlines in Africa, check out: How to use miles to get to Africa.

It's best to check the link to the airline web sites for updated information regarding routes. If the web site no longer works, then the airline could be defunct. Please e-mail me if you know of airlines listed that no longer operate or if there are new airlines that I haven't listed.
