Transair extends its West African network and inaugurates Central Africa
The leader in domestic transport in Senegal, Transair is entering a new phase in its international deployment with the opening of three new routes, including Libreville and Brazzaville.
Transair's international network will double from one to more than two as of July 2, 2022. On this date, the Senegalese private carrier will open a new route, linking Dakar (Senegal) to Conakry (Guinea), Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Libreville (Gabon) and Brazzaville (Congo), 3 times a week. "It's an opportunity to make a lot of discoveries on our routes, which are rich in emotion," he says. Given the complexity of this route (including 5 cities in 5 countries), Transair will certainly be without competition. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the airline should more or less compete with Mauritania Airlines for the service to Libreville, and Air Senegal, Air Côte d'Ivoire, Kenya Airways and Mauritania Airlines for the service to Abidjan. This route will enable it to discover Central Africa, whereas at present it only serves Dakar and Cap Skirring, on the domestic front, and Conakry and Praia (Cape Verde) in West Africa. Its services to Freetown (Sierra Leone), Banjul (Gambia), Bissau (Guinea Bissau) and Nouakchott (Mauritania) are suspended.
Transair operates a fleet of 3 aircraft (1 Boeing 737-500 and 2 Embraer ERJ 145), with an average age of 26.5 years.
