Getting to the Airport

If you're coming from the country's capital, Freetown, the airport is separated from the city by the Sierra Leone River. Most passengers opt to use a ferry to reach the terminal. Ferries are inexpensive, but the trip can take up to a few hours to complete. Water taxis are a more expensive option but will shorten the trip to about 30 minutes. If you're coming from Lungi, the trip is possible by road and will take around two hours. The airport recommends arriving at least three hours before flight departure.

Airport and Travel Tips

Freetown Airport's one terminal is split into three areas: a waiting hall, a departures zone, and an arrivals zone. There is a restaurant in both the waiting area and in the departures zone. Since Sierra Leone's water supply is low, airport amenities like restrooms can sometimes be non-functioning. The airport's V.I.P. lounges are worth the extra cost for their upgraded amenities.
