Where can you fly directly into Sierra Leone from?

Sierra Leone is a nation in West Africa. It shares borders with Guinea in the northeast, Liberia in the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest. There are no nonstop flights from the United States to Sierra Leone, so you will need to make at least one stop along the way. However, a few U.S. airports provide connecting flights to Sierra Leone. Lungi International Airport (FNA) is the primary airport in Freetown, Sierra Leone, that accepts connecting flights from the United States. The airport is the primary international entry point to Sierra Leone, with service provided by a number of different airlines. John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), New York, is one of many U.S. hubs with connections to Sierra Leone. Brussels Airlines is one of the airlines that provides connecting flight services between JFK and Sierra Leone. This airline features single-layover flights from the US to Sierra Leone's Lungi International Airport, with a stopover in Brussels (BRU). Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), Virginia, is another US airport with connections to Sierra Leone. Located outside the United States' capital, this airport serves as a major hub for United Airlines. You will get Sierra Leone flight deals that depart from IAD and connect in Brussels through United Airlines.

Taxis are all equipped with meters, and the fee varies based on the time of day and the location of the passenger. From the airport, a trip into the heart of the city typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour. The airport and downtown Freetown are connected by a number of bus lines. Every 30 minutes, buses run from the airport, and they are managed by the Sierra Leone Road Transport Corporation (SLRTC). Shuttles leave the airport and bring passengers to the central bus station. The bus ride typically lasts about 1 hour, 30 minutes, or 2 hours. FNA and the city center are both accessible by rail. The hourly service, which is operated by the Freetown Railway Company (FRC), connects Lungi Airport and downtown Freetown.
