Djibouti Airport

Djibouti airport, or Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport to give it its full name, is one of six airports in Djibouti and being the only one that is paved it is home to both civilian flights and Djibouti Airlines as well as Camp Lemonnier on its south side, a base for the United States Armed Forces, and the French military. It serves around 183,000 passengers a year (compared with approximated 300,000 for Durham Tees Valley Airport) and is normally described as "tiny and pathetic with no air-conditioning which makes the place ridiculously hot and humid." The airport is serviced by African Express Airways, Air France, Daallo Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Felix Airways, flydubai, Inter-Somalia, Jubba Airways, Kenya Airways and Yemenia.

The location of Djibouti Airport on the horn of Africa within easy range of Somalia and Yemen makes it of important strategic value. Camp Lemonnier, the former barracks of the French Foreign Legion, is today home to the Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) of the United States Africa Command and is used for humanitarian, and counter-terrorism efforts in the region.
