Kenya's national carrier, Kenya Airways, has announced the launch of a new service between Accra and Dakar effective 11 December 2022.
When launched, Kenya Airways will become the only airline to offer this connection and is expected to tap into the travel demand from corporate travellers, traders as well as leisure travellers between Ghana and Senegal.
Kenya Airways will deploy a Boeing 737-800NG two times a week from Nairobi to Accra and to Dakar. The return flight to Nairobi will also operate via Accra.
This new connection will offer customers within the Kenya Airways network more flight options and choices within West Africa and in and out of East Africa as well as provide seamless connections through Nairobi to Middle East, India, China, Europe and USA.
The route connection will increase Dakarflight optionsfrom the current two weekly flights to four times weekly and Accra from daily flights to nine times a week with a night flight out of Nairobi to Accra.
Kenya Airways Chief Commercial and Customer Officer Julius Thairu said, "The new connection will offer our guests more travel and connectivity options within West Africa. Strategically, the bigger picture is to support 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.”
