Air Senegal will relaunch its connection between Dakar and Accra at the start of the school year, suspended since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
From September 2, 2022, the Senegalese national airline will be back between its base In Dakar-Blaise Diagne and an Accra-Kotoka airport, with four flights per week operated by Airbus A319 that can accommodate 12 passengers in Business class and 108 in the economy. Departures are scheduled for Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at 4:00 p.m. arriving at 7:10 p.m., with return flights leaving Ghana at 8:20 p.m. and landing at 11:30 p.m.
Air Senegal remains without competition on this route suspended since the start of the health crisis, which has done a lot of damage to its “Dakar hub” strategy.
The Senegalese company has also set up a fifth frequency for the summer season on the route between Dakar and Cotonou airports in Benin, Douala in Cameroon, and Libreville in Gabon.
The A319 flights are now provided every day except Monday and Wednesday, with departures at 12:10 a.m. and finally arriving at 9:00 a.m., return flights leaving Léon Mba airport at 9:50 a.m. to land at 4:35 p.m. in Dakar.
In addition to the other days and flight times “adapted to the needs of passengers, this increase will boost the air bridge established by Air Senegal between West Africa and Central Africa. Above all, it will offer a choice of easy connections via Dakar to around twenty destinations in West Africa, Europe, and the United States”, where it now offers three flights a week to New York and Baltimore, the airline announced.
