Algiers - Post Report Question and Answers

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

DC, currently a long trek with possible overnight in Frankfurt or Paris - Dec 2021

US. It is currently near impossible to get home due to Algeria not having regular flight due to COVID (for over a year). - Oct 2021

DC -> Algiers is usually done through Paris or Frankfurt. With Covid travel is a mess, so plan well in advance and make sure you add a rest stop in the itinerary due to travel disruptions. Pre-Covid travel to and from Europe was incredibly easy. - Aug 2021

Traveling back to U.S. from Algiers isn't terrible during normal times. You layover in France or Frankfurt (or even Rome - I once had a layover there). Several hour flight to France, then 8+ hours across the Atlantic. - Apr 2021

Flights used to be via Europe but since Covid Algeria has closed its borders and with limited repatriation flights it has become much more expensive and time consuming. - Oct 2020

USA. Three flights to get to/from Algiers from the northeast. - Oct 2020

Washington, DC, is home. It's not a bad flight, very reasonable layover times in Frankfurt or Paris. - Sep 2019

United States. Connections are easy to the US through major European hubs. - Mar 2019

East coast of the US; minimum travel time is about 15 hours but often turns into 18 or 19. The typical connections are through Paris or Frankfurt. - Sep 2016

Washington D.C. Connections are through Frankfort (Lufthansa) or Paris (Air France) with direct flights. About 12-18 hours depending on layover. You can fly Air Algerie internationally but expect significant delays/cancellations. - Jun 2016

DC, everything USG goes through Paris; other connections are possible through other European cities. - Mar 2014

Washington D.C. - about 12 hours via Frankfurt. - Oct 2013
