The Kabala Airport (KBA) is not an international airport and does not sustain commercial planes. It is a municipal/heliport. Planes rarely land at KBA, because there is no clear landing strip. The people of Kabala depend upon the Sierra Leone Transportation Authority bus system to get to and from Kabala. The nearest major airport is Lungi International Airport (FNA / GFLL). This airport has international flights from Freetown, Sierra Leone and is 278 km from the center of Kabala, Sierra Leone. Another major airport is Conakry International Airport (CKY / GUCY), which has international flights from Conakry, Guinea and is 399 km from Kabala, Sierra Leone.
There have been rumors regarding the building and expansion of an airport in Kabala because of the vast amount of open space. The airport would serve the entire Northern Province of the country as an airport/heliport allowing non-commercial and small planes to land and take off. This would allow residents to get to and from Kabala faster and easier. Residents would be able to connect at major international airport such as Lungi International Airport (FNA) or Conakry, Guinea (CKY) although an air strip has not been built as well as any kind of buildings or system to support an airport of such abilities. The existence of this airport is still not a reality but a plan is in working progress according to the Sierra Leone Transportation Authority. Currently the space is being used as a heliport.
