Recently launched flag carrier Air Senegal has announced plans to fly between Dakar and Paris CDG from February 1, 2019.

The airline will offer a daily service using new A330 neo aircraft – two of which were ordered from Airbus this year.

According to Air Senegal’s online reservations, flights will depart Dakar at 0950, arriving into Paris CDG at 1615, before returning at 1845 and landing back into the Senegalese capital at 2330.

Air Senegal is the third incarnation of the country’s flag carrier, following on from failed attempts with Air Senegal International and Senegal Airlines.

The airline currently offers regional flights between Dakar and Senegal’s second largest city Ziguinchor, using ATR turboprop aircraft.
