Gambia Bird launches 3 new destinations in West Africa

Following the outstanding success of its first 18 months of operations, Gambia Bird Airlines has announced the launch of services to three new destinations in West Africa.

The new services will operate from Gambia Bird’s home base of Banjul, The Gambia, to Bissau, in Guinea-Bissau, Lagos, in Nigeria, Dakar in Senegal, and Douala, in Cameroon, as well as from each of the new destinations to points across the airline’s growing network.

The new services will allow Gambia Bird to double the number of connections previously offered, with 25 connections each week from Dakar, 20 from Banjul, 20 from Freetown, 18 from Accra, 15 from Lagos and 18 from Monrovia.

Flights to a fourth new destination, Conakry, in Guinea, will be launched as soon as local conditions allow.

Announcing the new routes, Thomas Wazinski, Chief Executive Officer of Gambia Bird Airlines, said: “We are delighted to be launching these new services, and to be adding important new destinations across West Africa to our network.”

He said: “Our comfortable and reliable fleet of Airbus 319s will offer competitively-priced connections for both business and leisure passengers within our network, and we look forward to welcoming customers on these new routes.”

Karsten Balke, Chief Commercial Officer, added: “There is growing demand for safe and reliable air travel between West Africa’s major cities and we are confident that these new routes will deliver increased choice and convenience for customers who want to take holidays within the region, visit friends and relatives or conduct business.”

Gambia Bird operates long haul services from Banjul to Barcelona and London, and from Freetown to London.

The airline currently runs a fleet of Airbus 319-100s, which operate throughout its network. Gambia Bird is financially backed by the German airline group Germania.
