September 03, 2021: Air Senegal has operated it first flight from Dakar via New York JFK to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. As far as freight uplift from US to West Africa is concerned, Air Senegal has the capability to carry up to 12 tonnes of cargo per flight out of US to the region. The airline is keenly looking forward to working with freight forwarders in the air cargo market segment to boost its presence accordingly.
The carrier will be maintaining its original two weekly flights to US effective September 2, 2021 using A330-900 Neo.
The schedule offers convenient two-way connectivity via Dakar to Abidjan (ABJ), Bamako (BKO), Conakry (CKY), Banjul (BJL), Ziguinchor (ZIG), Nouakchott (NKC) and Freetown (FNA). The airline hopes to facilitate the growth of inbound business, trade and tourism from USA to Senegal and within the region as Senegal offers world class beaches, history and culture that has appealed to the American travelling public for decades.
