Bujumbura International Airport

Bujumbura International Airport is located near Burundi’s capital. The airport is only seven miles from the downtown and is served by major airlines such as Rwandair Express, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, British Airways, Egyptair, and BMI. Unfortunately, there are no direct flights from the US, but connections can be made via cities like London, Brussels, Rome, Paris, Nairobi, Kigali, Kampala, and Addis Ababa.

Transfers to and from the airport are very reliable, but pricey. To avoid being overcharged by taxis, see if your hotel has a shuttle service.
