It occupies a central location on the main highway between the historic walled city of Harar and the city of Hargeisa. Recently, a major road network was also established with the city of Degehabur in 2008. Jijiga is also home to the air travel hub known as the Wilwal International Airport, and is also referred to as the Garaad Wiil-Waal Airport. It serves flights to Jijiga from the cities of Addis Ababa, Gode, Kabri Dar, and Dire Dawa on the national carrier Ethiopian Airlines.

History

Jijiga first came to the attention of the western world by author W.C. Barker in 1842, who noted the citys prominence as a stop on the caravan route that was established between the cities of Zeila and Harar. In 1893, a British colonel noted Jijiga as a fortified city with a 25-men-strong garrison next to a group of wells that served the citys needs. Historical records then list the city as a point of contention between the Ethiopian army and the forces of Sayyid Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, after which it served as Dejazmach Nasibu Emmanuals headquarters during the time of the Second Italo-Ethiopian War. World War 2 saw the city absorbed into the British Empire, before it was then returned to Ethiopian rule in 1948. Despite its war-heavy lineage, Jijiga was the site of a regional effort for peace and development that was spearheaded by the Regional Government in 1996, and the event was attended by 535 administrators from the surrounding region.
However, as you will discover on your sightseeing flights to Jijiga, the city was also home to violence in 2007, and in 2008, the Jijiga River broke its banks and flooded several areas within the city and the surrounding area.

Climate

Jijiga is famed for its beautiful landscape, as it is surrounded by mountains and as such, is lucky enough to witness a cool mountain climate.
