Monrovia-Roberts Airport Reviews

Monrovia-Roberts Airport (IATA: ROB, ICAO: GLRB), informally known as Robertsfield, is an international airport in the West African nation of Liberia. Located near the town of Harbel, the single runway airport is about 35 miles (56 km) outside of the nation’s capital of Monrovia, and as an origin and destination point is referred to as “Monrovia” and locally is often referred to simply as “RIA.” The facility with its 11,000 feet (3,400 m) long runway was an emergency landing site for the United States’ Space Shuttle program and is the principal airport in the country. The airport is named in honor of Joseph Jenkins Roberts, the first President of Liberia.

The Monrovia – Roberts Airport was originally built by the United States government as an Air Force base as part of these activities. The runway was built long enough for B-47 Stratojet bombers to land for refueling, giving Liberia what was for many years the longest runway in Africa. President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the United States had lunch with President Edwin J. Barclay at Robertsfield visit to Liberia in January 1943.

Monrovia was consistently a key link in Pan American’s African network, usually an intermediate stop between Accra and Dakar, from which service continued onward to Europe and New York. In the late 1970s and into the early 1980s, the airport became Pan Am’s principal African hub, with a non-stop service from New York JFK connecting at Robertsfield to such destinations as Dakar, Accra, Abidjan, Lagos, and Conakry, among others, and continuing on to Nairobi and even at times Johannesburg, so that for many years virtually every Pan Am passenger to Africa passed through Robertsfield.
