Gabon Libreville Private Jet Charter

Léon-Mba International Airport is the main airport in Gabon. Located in the northern part of the capital city of Libreville, the runway runs parallel to the Gabon Estuary and a few hundred meters northeast of the Gulf of Guinea coast. This road is now surrounded by urbanization. Both international and domestic flights are available from the port.

Gabon’s capital city of Libreville has had an international aerodrome since the 1950s. Successive developments have enabled it to host all types of aircraft over the years. Adaptation to very large aircraft (type 747) began in the late 1960s. Air navigation and instrument landing facilities complying with international specifications allow access to the airport in all weather conditions. On the same date, private jet flights to the aerodrome also started.

The airport is positioned as an integrated pole of activity with the main missions of operation, development and maintenance of airport infrastructures in the CEMAC (Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa) region. The aerodrome is named after the first President of the Republic of Gabon (1961 – 1967).

History of Léon-Mba International Airport

The current terminal building dates from 1991 and was designed to accommodate 1,2 million passengers per year. Two telescopic walkways provide direct access from the terminal to the aircraft. A 10.000 m² cargo terminal can handle up to 40.000 tons of cargo per year.

The aerodrome was managed by ASECNA (Agence pour la sécurité de la navigation aérienne en Afrique et à Madagascar) until 1988. Since then, the Gabonese government has granted a 30-year concession to the commercial management of the airport to ADL, a limited company under Gabon law. A set of specifications specifies the conditions under which this public service delegation will take place. Air navigation and fire safety duties remain the remit of ASECNA. Public safety and security missions are the responsibility of the State of Gabon.

Libreville travel guide

Libreville’s greatest asset is probably its seaside (bord de mer), where people gather every day to relax on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. There are some Gabonese statues facing the beach all along the coast.

It is also possible to go to Nzeng-ayong and see the Arboretum de Sibang, a huge tree sanctuary that brings together thousands of local species inside Libreville. The central ville is also a nice area to visit.

Highlights of the city include the Sainte Marie Cathedral, built in 1958 by Bishop Adama, the Church of St Michael Nkembo, with its Pan-African mosaic architecture, the National Museum of Art and Traditions with its interesting sculptures and art collections, the Gabon Museum with artefacts of Gabonese culture, the Presidential Palace, where the Gabonese government is located, and the Leon Mba Memorial to Gabon’s first president after independence in 1960.

Transportation From Léon-Mba Airport to the city center

It is possible to reach the city centre by buses and taxis at the Terminal 1 exit. The taxi option is the best one, as bus services are not regular. Taxis, which can be recognized by their red-white or purple-white colors, do not have a taximeter and bargaining can be made before the journey.

In addition, there are offices of different car rental companies within the port.
