Uncertain status

The satellite imagery shows a possible clear landing area to the east of the location marker, but it's not at all clear that there is a real airport here, despite the fact that it appears in charts and Wikipedia and has an ICAO code.

Ghost airport?

No runway is visible in the satellite imagery. See problem report:

Bir Moghrein runway status... be cautious...

By 2004 the paved runway was always destroyed due the fights of the Sand War between Morocco and Polisario from 1975 to 1991...

So you had to use the airstrip after a previous look about its status by Mauritanian authority on ground...

Airstrips in desert are "often" covered by floods after rains : there are muddy during some weeks, and sometimes ravined...

Be cautious and secure... Keep saved !

Responses from ARO/AIS OFICE

1) When you call o send a fax nobody unswer it do not matter if you go to the AIP or any other sourse. (doit yourself call to Noadibou airpot or anywhere, the AIP means nothing for them just paper)

2) They do not respect ICAO international agreements eventhough they are signors, for instance, the resquest a clearance number for overfly, tecnical stop or whatever. (no freedoms of the air) Probably they donΒ΄t even know what agreements they have signed and part of.

3) If you need to get fuel prices or something they do not put the means.

4) Whatever the problem they will increase it.

5) They like to see airports empty of aircraft so they donΒ΄t have to move.

6) A handling for a small aircraft 500€ if do not want to have problems.

7) If you can avoid a stop over by in Mauritania do it.

8) This country is isolating itself and then blaming someone else (europeans, indians, chinese), the sourse of there problems comes from abroad according to them, probably from another planet.

9) The people related to aviation field they do not speak english
