The international airport in Dakar is, by comparison, a very small international airport. It can take a little time getting in and out of the airport, since there are no x-ray metal detectors, and belongings need to be carefully checked. One finds the usual amenities of duty-free shops and a money exchange bureau, but there are no major restaurants at the airport. For food, one can either purchase a snack from vendors outside the airport or go to one of the several hotels within walking distance of the airport.

Since the airport is not included in any bus routes, one generally uses a taxicab or a private car, for which there is good parking. The airport is not far from the city.
