Niger Overflight Permit Regulation and Procedures

If you're an operator of a business jet or a commercial airline with plans to fly over Niger airspace, obtaining a Niger Overflight Permit from the Niger Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is mandatory. As a flight dispatcher, it's important to have a good understanding of the requirements for obtaining this permit, including the fact that the issuing of an overflight permit confirms that there is no political or security objection to your airline, aircraft, or country of origin/destination and that there are no outstanding navigation fees due to the ATC authority.

  1. What are CAA's working hours, including whether they are open on weekends?
  2. Which aircraft documents must be submitted with the overflight request?
  3. Are there any fees charged by the CAA for processing the permit?
  4. What is the official validity period of the overflight permit, as determined by the CAA?
  5. How can the Niger air navigation bill be obtained, either through IATA or a local agent?
Niger is a landlocked country in West Africa, and overflight permits are required for aircraft to fly over its airspace. The permits are issued by the Niger Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), which is the regulatory body responsible for overseeing the country's aviation industry, To apply for an overflight permit in Niger, you would need to submit a request to the NCAA at least 72 hours before your planned flight. The NCAA will then review the application and issue the overflight permit if all requirements are met.

We recommend contacting a reputable aviation service provider or consulting with the NCAA directly for the most up-to-date information and assistance with the overflight permit application process.

Travel Information :


Niger or the Niger, officially the Republic of the Niger, is a landlocked country in Western Africa named after the Niger River.

  • Zinder
A maze of tight-knit lanes and hidden streets weaves and winds to form the hard-to-navigate heart of Zinder. Meanwhile, the Sultan’s Palace towers over the town with its great adobe architectural achievements.
  • Niamey
More than 1.3 million people live, work and play in the capital city of Niamey, making it the veritable human heart of Niger. The city straddles the courses of the Niger River in the south-west, and bustles with fantastic open air markets, and a surprisingly heady nightlife scene after dark (check out the beer joints around Yantala Ancien – and remember the strict drinking laws as you do!).
  • Agadez
Boasting nearly 1,000 years of history and steeped in tales of Sahelian camel caravans, the Ottomans (believe it or not!), and the old Songhai imperialists, enthralling Agadez certainly has a story to tell. The town is found smack bang in the heart of the country as a whole, surrounded by the sun-scorched dunes of the Sahara Desert and the endless yellow of the sand sea.
  • W National Park
Unquestionably the most famous national park in all of Niger, the W National Park has also attained that coveted UNESCO World Heritage Site tag, which it was awarded on account of its unique display of transition habitats between the savannah and the West African woods.
  • Ayorou
After just three hours on the rumbling dust roads from the capital you could find yourself alighting in the charming river town of Ayorou, one of the top draws of Southwestern Niger. Known for the surrounding riparian habitats that encompass the settlement, Ayorou itself sits on its very own island, where the mosque and marketplaces both make their home too.
  • Abaaba National Park
Established back in 1987 for the sole purpose of protecting the endangered animals that make this territory their home, the Abaaba National Park has remained firmly off the radar for nature-loving travelers making their way through this land on the join of the Sahel and Sahara. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth the trip though.
  • Nguigmi
The gateway to the aforementioned Abaaba National Park and the easternmost settlement in the whole of Niger, the town of Nguigmi buts up the banks of cross-border Lake Chad with its humble air strip and pretty city mosque. The whole place oozes the character you’d expect of a far-flung desert town, with camel caravans coming and going every day of the year.
  • Maradi
For most travelers, Maradi – the third-largest city in the whole country – will be just an administrative stop; to switch transports or stock up before heading out to the historic richness of Zinder, or to the Nigerian border to the south. However, those who linger will discover a town that hardly feels like any other urban destination in the nation; a place of (relative) economic prosperity and buzzing markets, oozing confidence and panache.
  • Tahoua
Traditionally the place where the Tuareg tribes of the northern desert lands fused with the Fulani folk of the southern reaches of the country, the town of Tahoua is where two of the major cultural identities in Niger can be seen mingling, mixing, and – most importantly of all – trading their wares.
  • Timia
Bulbous pink pomegranates, blood-red and orange citrus fruits, and bountiful clusters of watermelons are might not what you’d expect to see this deep in the heart of the Sahara Desert, but the far-flung town of Timia tells a different story.
