Travellers to Liberia for the presidential and legislative elections and business transactions planning to arrive by air will have to do so by 8 October.


The Liberia Airport Authority (LAA) said it will shut the only international airport on October 9, the eve of the country’s presidential and legislative elections, to resume second phase rehabilitation work on the runway.

According to the LAA, the rehabilitation will also include installation of new aeronautical ground lighting systems.

“In view of this development, and in consultation with the airlines, the runway will be closed to air traffic on Mondays and Thursdays, beginning October 9,” the LAA said in a media statement published here Thursday.

Alternative way to enter Liberia during the closure would be by the country’s land borders with Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire and Sierra Leone, with poor options by sea.
