What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections?

United States. The flights are generally very long and they leave late at night. When I arrived, there were few flight options. I hear Qatar has stopped operating now. However, you still have Egypt Air, Turkish Air, Fly Dubai. I believe there are some other regional carriers such as Sudan Airways.

Flying in and out of Eritrea are long routes, at early morning hours, and fairly expensive depending on where you are coming or going. For instance a flight from Eritrea to Cairo (which is a direct) is $745. A flight from Boston to Eritrea during the same time frame is $1100. - Dec 23, 2016
