Kissidougou airfield is 8 km away from Kissidougou town. There are no significant plane movement except for the humanitarian flights. The mining company Rio Tinto has started some flights to Kissidougou. Passengers travelling on private planes must pay 20,000 GNF before boarding the plane. There is no Guinean CAA activity but the airfield remains useful for helicopter landing. In the airfield, there is a private fire-fighting society contracted by WFP Common Services due to the presence of the fuel tank requested by WFP.  WFP also pays a per diem to the representatives of National Navigation Office in charge of the tower control and his assistant.
