We travelled from Washington, D.C. Travel time was about 24 hours, via Charles de Gaulle airport, Paris. Connections were also available via Ankara with Turkish Air. Travel to Niamey always entailed a layover of at least a couple of hours, no matter where you transit through. The new airport building in Niamey is very fancy though, with many more facilities than the old airport building had. - Apr 2020
