More About Roberts International Airport (ROB)
Airport Name: Roberts International Airport Airport Address: , Monrovia, Liberia Main Airlines:
Roberts International Airport , informally also known as Robertsfield, is an international airport in the West African nation of Liberia. Located near the town of Harbel in Margibi County, the single runway airport is about outside of the nation's capital of Monrovia, and as an origin and destination point is referred to as 'Monrovia' and locally is often referred to simply as 'RIA.' The airport is named in honor of Joseph Jenkins Roberts, the first President of Liberia.
The airport is the nation's busiest and most important aviation facility, currently hosting the country's only scheduled commercial airline services, with direct connections to several major cities in West Africa as well as weekly flights to Europe on Brussels Airlines. The airport is currently reported to serve 228,000 passengers annually and is currently undergoing a major expansion, including a new passenger terminal. The facility with its long runway was an emergency landing site for the United States' Space Shuttle program and is one of only two with paved runways in the country. While Monrovia's secondary airport, Spriggs Payne, is much closer to the city center and possesses the nation's only other paved runway, it has not had scheduled commercial service since ASKY Airlines suspended service in November 2014. * Source: Wikipedia
