The Senegalese national airline will launch many new routes in Africa (Nouakchott, Abuja, Lagos, Accra and Casablanca).

 Air Senegal has announced the launch of its hub at Blaise Diagne international Airport of Dakar. The airline is thus making a new step forward in its growth strategy.

The international flights will now be connected to the flights operated in  West Africa. Passengers flying daily from Paris will be able to continue their journey to Bamako (Mali), Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), Conakry (Guinea), Bissau (Guinea Bissau), Banjul (Gambia), Praia (Cape Verde) or Niamey (Niger).

"AIBD has an ideal geographic position. The  hub project is now a reality  thanks to the strategy implemented by Air Senegal. A passenger can fly with Air Senegal to Bamako and reach Paris via Dakar with a stopover of less than 2 hours ",says Ibrahima Kane, CEO of Air Senegal.

Air Senegal has also launched routes to several new destinations in Africa : Nouakchott (Mauritania), Abuja and Lagos (Nigeria), Accra (Ghana) and Casablanca (Morocco /as from November 26, 2019).
