Diori Hamani International Airport (IATA: NIM) is located in the south eastern part of the city of Niamey. This airport is named after the first President of the Republic of Niger – Hamani Diori. This is an airport used by the military as well as civilian aircraft and it is also home to ‘The African School for Meteorology’. Regional airlines use this airport and also Air France and Turkish Airlines operate regular flights here. As far as international standards are concerned this airport is basic.
The VIP room is uninviting but does offer cramped seating. There is a Duty Free shop that is very small and offers a very limited amount of products. Taxis are available outside the terminal and a price should be agreed in advance.
Niger has a population of 21.5 million people and is steadily growing. Many visitors to Niger end up leaving the country with many great memories of the sweeping Sahara Desert and the welcoming nature of the people. The Aïr Mountains are a gateway to the many oasis towns and much Neolithic rock art dating back to medieval times. One can even view dinosaur graveyards and completely abandoned ancient settlements. With all this splendour, lovely people and history one must always remember that for the foreign traveller Niger remains a dangerous place with reported kidnappings and other security threats. Etiquette in the country is important and one should avoid criticising the country when speaking to the locals and one needs to be patient at all times and avoid any confrontation. In this region tropical diseases are commonplace but if you keep yourself well immunised, you should be able to avoid most of them.
Niamey is the capital city and here you will find some great ornate mosques in typical dusty streets. This city is located on the river Niger and is home to the National Museum of Niger that houses a good collection of relics from the past. Interestingly, there are some nice restaurants in Niamey including the well renowned Italian restaurant ‘Le Pilier’ where one can enjoy very tasty gorgonzola over their favourite lasagne or ravioli.
