||Having been a French territory until 1960, gaining independence only seemed to worsen situations in Chad. Today, the country remains one of the poorest, and most corrupt, in the world and due to political instabilities, travel to Chad is inadvisable.
Despite problems, Chad’s borders are still open to visitors. The main international gateway is the airport in the capital city, N’Djamena (airport code: NDJ). Flights from South Africa are available with several airlines, and with the option of one or two connections. One stop flights to Chad are offered with Ethiopian Airlines and South African Airways via Addis Ababa, or with Air France via Paris. Alternatively choose from Kenya Airways, Virgin, Lufthansa, British Airways, BMI or Tri-MG Intra Asia Airlines for two stop flights, most of which are via London and Paris.
