Getting There – Malawi
Travel restrictions and additional entry requirements may apply for Malawi due to the coronavirus pandemic and if so, can change from day-to-day. Please visit our coronavirus page to stay informed about the latest developments.
Malawi's main airport is Lilongwe International Airport (LLW), located 26km/16mi from the capital, Lilongwe. Some international flights arrive at Chileka International Airport (BLZ), 16km/10mi from Blantyre.
Onward travel is by either small aircraft or car. Self-drive is a viable option. If you’re on a package tour, your local tour operator will arrange pick-up from the airport and all further transportation as part of the tour.
Please check Skyscanner, or for multiple-destination flights check Expedia, to see which airlines can take you to Malawi and what tickets would cost.
The national carrier only runs domestic flights between Lilongwe and Blantyre. A more versatile option is offered by Ulendo Airlink, which offers scheduled flights to most major upmarket tourist destinations and chartered flights to some of the less-visited tourist destinations.
Entry requirements can change, so please contact your local Malawi embassy to verify that the information below is current.
