Posted 20 April 2019 · Add Comment

Air Senegal has announced the appointments of Philippe Bohn as Independent Administrator and MIbrahima Kane as CEO.

This announcement marks the successful completion of the first phase of industrial, commercial and financial launch of the Senegalese airline. As he had committed himself to the Senegalese authorities, Bohn assured the successful launch of Air Senegal with a renewed and modern fleet and the come-back the Senegalese national carrier on long haul flights. The transition with Senegalese executives has been done smoothly and allows a successful transition at the top managment of the company.

Bohn has been working relentlessly since summer 2017 and until the presidential election last February, to transform the national carrier into a successful company in line with the government's project  for an emerging Senegal. In less than two years, Bohn and his team have propelled Air Senegal as one of the leading companies in West and Central Africa. As a result, several important steps have been taken. As soon as it obtained its Air Operator Certificate in April 2018, Air Senegal was able to pave its way to great achievements. In less than a year of effective activity, Air Senegal has a fleet including the first A330neo on the African continent, operating on the Dakar-Paris route.

Bohn has also been praised and the company has been awarded the prize of the most promising West African company by Capital Finance International magazine.

As the new Administrator, he will continue to play a key role in the future success of the company. Air Senegal welcomes its new Chief Executive Officer, Ibrahima Kane, formerly Managing Director of "Fonds souverain d'investissements stratégiques" of Senegal.
