Are they state-owned?

EK is assisting them (cf. the launch of DXB-DKR by EK, and UAE is investing in touristic projects in Senegal), and has maybe a minority share in the Company. Senegal Airlines is supposed to be private, but has encountered delays because of political issues and funding issues...

By the way this new airline will be a key element with the new airport of DKR, which will be managed by Fraport:

Thank you for the Fraport link. I know that the son of President Wade, Karim is pushing very hard to see the birth of the new airlines. Even if it is a private venture a lot of former ASI (Air Sénégal International) will be hired.

Is this a real source? There have been rumours about Senegal Airlines for months now. What is really going on?

I imagine it's just West Africa, same script, different cast...

The new Blaise-Diagne airport is situated outside Dakar at Ndiass. There will be a new two lanes highway between
Dakar and Diamniadio to serve the new airport. Also there will be a train to link the airport ( an extension of «Le petit
train Bleu» and buses.

What's the status of the highway? The drive from the area where the airport will be to Dakar is a mess.

As far as I know the highway has been completed up to Thiraroye. They are now working to link Keur Massar and Rufisque. Up to the completion of the Higway to Diamniadio it wont't be always easy to to shuttle from the airport to
Dakar but things are improving gradually.
