Asky Finally To Start Flights To DKR

Wed Dec 12, 2012 12:31 am

It appears that ASKY has finally been given rights to fly to Dakar.

Amadeus shows 3 weekly flights LFW-DKR via BKO, outbound on Tue/Fri/Sun, return the day after.

Long time coming. Should make getting around West Africa a lot easier.

Where is LFW?

So far as I know, there are plenty of options for getting around West Africa.

I guess you've never had to travel between ACC and DKR.

Quoting AF022 (Reply 2):

At the moment, SA to ABJ then to DKR is the easiest way (but not cheapest)

Air Senegal, VK, SLOK use to fly to on the DKR-ACC
I still recall flying GH on ACC-DKR on a DC9, They used to call it the 'west coast flight' as it had 4 or 5 stops on the way.

I also recall we skipped CKY as no passengers where bound there.
GH use to do well on the intra african west coast
Next destinations, Suarabaya, beirut, paris, Accra
