There are a number of airports in Somalia. However, not all Somalia airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest Somalia airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for Somalia.
Somalia (Somali: Soomaaliya; Arabic: As-Suumaal) is a coastal nation at the Horn of Africa in East Africa. It is bordered by Ethiopia to the west, Djibouti to the north and mid-west, Kenya on its south-west, and the Gulf of Aden on its north, and the Indian Ocean at its east.
The northern part of the country is hilly, and in many places the altitude ranges between 900 and 2,100 metres (3,000-7,000 ft) above sea level. The central and southern areas are flat, with an average altitude of less than 180 metres. The Juba and the Shebelle Rivers rise in Ethiopia and flow south across the country towards the Indian Ocean. The Shebelle, however, does not reach the sea except during seasons of high rain.
Major climatic factors are a year-round hot climate, seasonal monsoon winds, and irregular rainfall with recurring droughts. Mean daily maximum temperatures range from 30 C to 40 C (85-105 F), except at higher elevations and along the east coast. Mean daily minimums usually vary from about 15 C to 30 C (60-85 F). The southwest monsoon, a sea breeze, makes the period from about May to October the mildest season at Mogadishu. The December-February period of the northeast monsoon is also relatively mild, although prevailing climatic conditions in Mogadishu are rarely pleasant. The "tangambili" periods that intervene between the two monsoons (October-November and March-May) are hot and humid.
The Somali state currently exists solely in a de facto capacity; Somalia has no recognized central government authority nor any other feature associated with an established independent state. De facto authority resides in the hands of the governments for the unrecognized entities of Somaliland, Puntland, the Supreme Islamic Courts Council and the weak, but United Nations-recognized, Interim transitional government that has nearly disappeared. Violence has plagued Somalia since warlords ousted former President Mohamed Siad Barre in 1991.
Somaliland (Somali: Soomaaliland) is an unrecognized de facto sovereign state located in northwest Somalia in the Horn of Africa. In May 1991, Somaliland people declared an independent Republic of Somaliland that now includes five of the eighteen administrative regions of Somalia with a newly-created region called Saaxil. The area encompasses roughly the former British Somaliland protectorate. The capital of Somaliland is Hargeisa. ()
