Kenya Airways Announces New Flights Between Senegal And Ghana

Kenya Airways (KQ) has announced the launch of a new service between Accra and Dakar beginning December 11.

Kenya Airways, as the only airline offering this service, is expected to capitalize on the demand for travel between Ghana and Senegal from entrepreneurs, traders, and tourists.

Kenya Airways will fly a B737-800 from Nairobi to Accra twice a week, then to Dakar before returning to Nairobi via Accra.

Customers flying with Kenya Airways will now have more options for flights within West Africa, into and out of East Africa, and to and from the Middle East, India, China, Europe, and the United States via Nairobi.

A night flight from Nairobi to Accra will be added as part of the route connection, increasing the number of flights from Dakar to four times per week and from daily to nine times per week.

“The new connection will offer our guests more travel and connectivity options within West Africa. Strategically, the bigger picture is to get the Single African Air Transport Market and the African Continental Free Trade Area which are key pillars for Africa’s growth, by growing and deepening our network connections within the continent,” said Julius Thairu, Kenya Airways Chief Commercial and Customer Officer.

Kenya Airways announced last week that it will begin four nonstop flights from Mombasa to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates on December 15, 2022.

Flights on the new route were supposed to begin in early December, but were delayed due to the pilots’ strike.
