Kankan airfield is 10 km away from the city of Kankan. The national police and the Guinean military ensure the security of the airport. WFP Common Services pay a per diem to the Air controller. There is basically no other activity besides the humanitarian flights. There isn’t any Guinea CAA activity but the airfield is useful for helicopter landing. WFP ensures the handling on the ground in addition to ground observers to clear the air strip before any landing or take off.
