On September 2, Air Senegal began twice-weekly flights from Washington Dulles to NYC Kennedy, then across the big pond to Daker’s ultramodern, regional air hub Blaise Diagne International Airport. From Blaise, passengers can connect to other destinations including Banjul.
The flights will also facilitate connections to Abidjan, Bamako, Conakry, Freetown Ziguinchor, Cap Skirring, Praia, Nouakchott, Cotonou, Douala, Libreville, and Casablanca. “With this new service, Air Senegal will make the US even more accessible for the West African communities,” says Ibrahima Kane, CEO of Air Senegal.
"This will make it easier and quicker to get to West Africa," agreed Bernadette Champion of Champion Services Travel. “We're returning to Gambia and Senegal in 2023 and Ghana also in 2023,” she added. Champion is taking reservations for its Ghana trip September 28 to October 10, 2022.
