A flight from the Mediterranean Capital to the Warm and Isolated town of Illizi

Today I decided to head back to one of my favourite regions of the world - The Sahara Desert. Having explored Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt (for the most part), I decided it was time to visit Algeria, in a livery I doubt many people know even exists.

Departure Airport: Algiers Houari Boumediene (DAAG) 🇩🇿
Arrival Airport: Illizi Takhamalt (DAAP) 🇩🇿
Aircraft Tassili Airlines Dash-8 Q400

I would have taken a picture at the gate but there wasn’t one so I couldn’t


Thank you for viewing and I hope you liked the pictures

It is certainly a route I would do again, and would definitely recommend

especially if you only fly in Europe/The US

To anyone interested...

Here is a link of the routes Tassili Airlines operate in the marvellous Q400

If only we had the Air Algerie livery, so people can explore Algeria more than now.

Awesome pics @Charlieab29!

Nice pics as always Charlie! Flew the Tassili Dash 8 to Griss a couple weeks ago and it was one of the most fun flights I’ve done in a while! Surely beat any USA Domestic flight I’ve done

Thanks for your kind words. Domestic routes in Algeria really are nice, i’m very glad we have this awesome livery.

Even if we didn’t, I still probably would be doing the routes in the Generic Q400 lol

Your photos are very beautiful. Congratulations on the idea of ​​flying, I will also explore this region.
