Airport cleared for take-off

Article - November 29, 2011
The airport at The Gambia’s capital Banjul is being upgraded and repositioned as a regional hub that will link the West African region with the rest of the world.
The director general of the Gambia Civil Aviation Authority, Fansu Bojang, said: “The authority has put in place various incentives to encourage the creation of a home-based airline, a key requirement for the realisation of a hub-and-spoke system. Running parallel with this, the authority is also actively pursuing other existing major carriers with the view of luring them into Banjul.”

He revealed The Gambia has signed an Open Skies Agreement with the United States and Banjul Airport has been approved to serve as a last point of departure for flights into the US.

“In addition, it is hoped that major in-roads will be made in convincing major carriers, such as Delta Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines, to work out of Banjul in the very near future,” he added.
