Airports in Gabon

Libreville Leon Mba International Airport (LBV)


The main international airport for Gabon, Libreville International Airport is both a public and a military airport and the hub for local operators. It is not a big airport and has only one terminal, with limited facilities for tourists. Queues at passport control can become long and at times the airport can feel chaotic. There are currently no direct flights to Gabon from the UK or the US but connecting flights are available.


Just over six miles (11km) from the city centre.

Getting to the city

Most hotels have a free airport transfer shuttle service and there are also always taxis available at the airport.
