N'Djamena International Airport (IATA: NDJ, ICAO: FTTJ), serves N'Djamena, Chad, and is the main international airport of Chad.

The airport is dual use, with civilian and military installations on opposite sides of the single runway.

Military base

There has been a French military base here since 1986, when Operation Epervier started, and was used as a French base during previous operations. In 2006 Epervier is composed of 1000 men, Mirage F-1 fighters, Puma helicopters, and transport and reconnaissance aircraft.

The French base is also shared by the small Chad Air Force.

Accidents and incidents

  • On 28 January 1978, Douglas C-47 TT-EAB of Air Tchad was reportedly shot down by rebels near Tibesti. The damaged aircraft apparently landed at N'Djamena International Airport.
  • On 19 September 1989 UTA flight 772, a McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 (registration N54629)[1] operating the Brazzaville-N'Djamena-Paris CDG sector, was bombed 46 minutes after take-off from N'Djamena causing the aircraft to crash while flying over Niger. All 156 passengers and 14 crew members on board perished. For nearly 20 years, this incident marked the deadliest air disaster involving a French-operated airliner, in terms of loss of life. As of June 2009, it ranks as the second-deadliest (see Air France flight 447).
  • On 24 July 2001, Vickers Viscount 3D-OHM of Transtel was damaged beyond economic repair in a take-off accident. Although written off by the insurers, the aircraft was repaired. Repairs were almost complete when a soldier accidentally discharged his gun, puncturing a fuel tank.
