Photographer's Note

Melchior NDADAYE International Airport (IATA: BJM, ICAO: HBBA) is an airport in Bujumbura, the former capital of Burundi. It is Burundi's only international airport and the only one with a paved runway.

The airport was opened in 1952. From 1 July 2019, the airport was renamed Melchior NDADAYE International Airport in tribute to the Hero of Democracy, the first democratically elected president in Burundi in 1993 and murdered the same year (21 October) after just three months of governance.

As of December 2018, 6 airlines maintain regular scheduled service to Bujumbura International Airport from the following destinations: Dar es Salaam, Kigoma, Brussels, Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Kigali, Entebbe.
