Transportation in Djibouti

Transportation in Djibouti is a convenient issue for the tourists as well as local citizens. The ample transportation facilities make movements easy in Djibouti.
It is convenient to reach Djibouti by availing the two international routes that connect the capital of Djibouti via Yoboki, Djibouti and Dire Dawa, Ethiopia. The highway stretch of 2,890 kilometers makes the transportation in Djibouti by cars easy. The trucks with the export and import items avail this highway extensively. Such highways contribute to the economy of Djibouti extensively.

The Port of Djibouti offers a transit point for the international ships to re-export their goods. The railroad is one more option that the tourists and local citizens avail to a large scale. There is a stretch of 100 kilometers of railroad in Djibouti. The Addis Ababa-Djibouti railroad contributes largely to the rail links of Djibouti with Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Yemen.

The two international airports in Djibouti with paved runways make the Djibouti transportation facilities more convenient. Both international as well as domestic airlines fly to and from these airports. These airports thus contribute to a large scale in the intercity links of Djibouti. There are ten other airports in Djibouti, which are unpaved and are mainly served by domestic flights.
