Airports in Burkina Faso

Ouagadougou Airport (OUA)


Ouagadougou Airport is a basic facility which has recently been renovated; travellers should allow plenty of time before flights as the queues can get very long.


The airport is located in the centre of Ouagadougou.

Getting to the city

Shared taxis (beaten-up old green Renaults) are available to transport passengers from the airport to the city. Private taxis (orange or green) are also available on request.
