Gambia Gets New Flight Connections

Arik Air, a new airline from Nigeria, will start operating in Banjul from Wednesday, the airline’s General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Suraj Sundaram, said on Tuesday.

According to him, the airline will fly from Nigeria to Banjul, Dakar and Freetown ending years of limited air access between the four cities.

He added that the new service would operate four times a week – Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

“A state-of-the-art Boeing 737-700 aircraft, configured to carry 124 passengers with 12 business class seats and 112 economy seats will be used for the new services. It is one of the two latest Boeing 737-700 aircraft delivered to Arik Air in March 2009,” he said.

Sundaram added that the services of the airline would improve accessibility and help the country to develop stronger economic ties and trade relations in West Africa.

He said Arik Air’s arrival was expected to stimulate further travel, ease the movement of goods and personnel and provide affordable air travel to communities in the Mano River region of Guinea Conakry, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Michael Mc Tighe, Arik Air’s Managing Director, said the airline serves19 airports across Nigeria as well as Accra, Cotonou, Niamey and Heathrow in London.
