HADID International Services now has an office and full supervisory capabilities at the AID (Aeroport International de Djibouti/Djibouti International Airport).

Due to the increase in the number of flights over and landing in the country mainly because of the political situation in the region, HADID International Services, a company with long experience in the market, has been approached and appointed by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) of Djibouti to take control of all the hassle related to the permit requests so that the CAA can concentrate fully on the control of their territory in the best possible way.

For the past decades, we have provided our clients with all our major services which include ground handling, payment of airport fees, O/F and landing permits, fuel, catering, hotel accommodation and airport transfers and now we are providing a tailored supervision done by professional supervisors wearing the HADID jacket and having full access to the airport facilities to meet and greet our clients. Our Supervisors speak French, English, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin, as well as local African dialects such as Swahili…etc.

Since January 01, 2015, we have served our clients more than 350 times in the country supporting them with overfly and landing permits, handling services, refuelling, hotels and airport transfers to name but a few. As part of our strategy of covering the continent entirely, all operators will change their way of thinking about Africa and the difficulties faced to land and get a simple service there compared to other regions like Europe or Asia.

Djibouti, a small but very well-located country has a huge number of flights crossing and landing for either a technical stop or for a regular flight. All operators flying from the Middle East to Africa and vice versa, will cross Djibouti airspace, making the country’s sky very busy due to its strategic location. In 2014 Djibouti International Airport had more than 251,000 passengers and more than 7,000 scheduled stops as well as 1,200 non-scheduled stops. Since the beginning of the year 2015, HADID has serviced more than 350 clients with permits, handling, Fuel and competitive hotel reservations.

Our strategy is to cover the entire continent and mainly to let all operators change their thinking about Africa and the difficulties involved in landing there in an effort to establish simple services when compared to Europe.
