Libreville, the capital city of Gabon, has had an international airport since the 1950s. Successive improvements in time have allowed the airport to welcome a multitude of different types of planes. The adaptation to the very big carriers (Boeing 747) dates back to the end of the 1960s. The air navigation and landing equipment with instruments that are compliant with international specifications now allow access to the airport in any local weather conditions. The Léon Mba Libreville International Airport is named after the first President of the Gabonese Republic who was in office from August 17, 1961 to November 28, 1967.

History of Libreville airport

The present structure of the air terminal dates back to 1991, with 16,000 m² of covered space receiving up to 1.2 Million passengers per year. Two airport fingers or passenger loading bridges allow for a direct access to the air terminal from parked planes. A freight terminal having 10,000 m² of space allow for the processing of up to 40,000 tons of freight per year.

After independence and up to the year 1988, the airport was managed by ASECNA (the Air Navigation Security Agency in Africa and Madagascar). Since that date, the Gabonese State has granted the commercial management of the airport in a 30-year contract to ADL, a Public Company coming under Gabonese law. This concession, granted through a Presidential Decree to ADL, defines the obligations of the Concession holder: operations, maintenance, renewal and development of airport infrastructure. A list of specifications gives the detail of the conditions under which this delegation of public service has been granted. ASECNA remains responsible for air navigation and fire safety, although public safety and security are up to the Gabonese government: the Border Police, the Gendarmes, the High Authority of Security and Facilitation.

The ADL company, coming under Gabonese law, wherein the State is a shareholder, works very closely in a partnership with Egis Airport Operations (the EGIS Group) and the Airport of the Province of Marseille within the context of one of the first African Public Private Partnerships (PPP).


The position of Léon Mba Libreville International Airport is to continue to be available for their clients, just as any attractive and dynamic activity, with a good performance and secure, integrated into the CEMAC zone with the main missions of guaranteeing the operations, management, development and maintenance of the airport infrastructure.
