Air Senegal launches service at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport
Air Senegal has launched a one-stop service between Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Dakar, Senegal. The airline is operating two roundtrip flights per week to Blaise Diagne International Airport, with a stop at New York JFK.
“We welcome this new Air Senegal service, which will foster tourism and trade opportunities between Maryland and Senegal,” said Ricky Smith, Executive Director, BWI Marshall Airport. “Air Senegal will offer easy access and efficient service to West Africa for many travellers throughout our National Capital region.”
The new service will be operated by Hi Fly Malta on Thursdays and Sundays with an A330-900neo. Air Senegal is currently committed to offer the service through the end of the winter slot season in late March 2022.
“The addition of Air Senegal to the BWI Marshall family is a win for the region and a win for the travelling public,” said Maryland Department of Transportation Secretary Greg Slater. “BWI Marshall consistently earns high ratings for convenience, comfort and reliability, and I know our team is looking forward to extend that service and hospitality to Air Senegal customers.”
The new service from Air Senegal offers convenient connections to a number of markets in Africa: Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire; Bamako, Mali; Conakry, Guinea; Banjul, Gambia; Ziguinchor, Senegal; Nouakchott, Mauritania; and Freetown, Sierra Leone.
