How long is the flight to Eritrea from Canada?
A one-stop flight from Toronto to Eritrea is about 14h to 16h 55m in duration. The number of stops can easily double travel time for this trip, due to the strict travel requirements in the arrival country and the limited access to only one international airport (Asmara International Airport serves all incoming flights). Cheaper flights offered through Eritrea travel deals will typically have a longer flight time, as well.
Which cities offer direct flights to Eritrea from Canada?
Currently, flights to this country are limited. One-stop flights are available from Toronto to Asmara but there are currently no direct flights to Eritrea. The only airlines currently being received in Eritrea are Turkish Airlines, FlyDubai, and Egypt Air. Travellers can find indirect flights available out of Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, and Montreal, as well. Emirates and Ethiopian Air offer connecting flights that ultimately arrive in Eritrea, although multiple connections may be required.
What is the best way to travel around Eritrea?
Eritrea has quite strict travel requirements for tourists. While locals will have access to all kinds of transportation, those visiting the country will need to obtain a host of travel permits to get anywhere in the country. Since you can only fly into Asmara International Airport, you will need a travel permit to even go beyond this capital city. A permit is required for every city that you intend to visit during your stay, so it is best to make pre-arrangements for transportation with one of the local travel agencies.
What are some things to do in Eritrea?
Travellers enjoy almost 1,000km of Red Sea coast, with beautiful beaches throughout the country. Asmara is popular because it offers a clean, low-crime tourist destination with beautiful architecture and plenty of attractions, from historic landmarks to modern conveniences. Cafes are also abundant. The area of Dankalia is popular among those looking to take in the relaxing coast, while Decemhare offers a historic look at what this town intended to be, although now it is just remnants. Emberemi is known for its mausoleums of Muhammad Ibn Ali and Sheikh el Armin. Tourists can visit FilFil to explore the outdoors, enjoy cycling, and visit the relaxed town of Keren, which is full of markets and diverse communities. The ancient port of Massawa offers history, as does the Tomb of Said Abu Bakr el Mirgani. Those looking to enjoy more beauty can also explore the Dahlak Archipelago or take a steam railway ride from Massawa to Asmara.
Do I need a passport to fly to Eritrea from Canada?
