The Lungi International Airport in Sierra Leone has several direct flights to and from countries across Europe, the Middle East & Africa.
The airport has gone through several refurbishments over the past 10 years.

The ambition of Sierra Leone is to meet demand through expansion of production, transmission and distribution infrastructure.
