Port Gentil Airport is an international, but not a very large scale airport serving Port-Gentil in Gabon. It is not uncommon for a tour planner advising their customers to visit this beautiful small country in central Africa. Although, it is a mainly seaport, the importance of Port Gentil Airport is in its own place. Many airlines are providing their services to the airport and bringing thousands of tourists every year.

Europeans arrived to this city in the 15th century. In 1875, French also came to this place and founded Franceville town, and occupied this country fully in 1885. Finally, in 1960, it became independent.
