Air Senegal has appointed Captain El Hadji Alioune Badara Fall as its new CEO.

He replaces Ibrahima Kane who has been fired due to unimpressive result.

Captain El Hadji becomes Air Senegal’s 4th CEO in 5 years.

Dakar-based Air Senegal is scheduled to restart flight operations to Ghana’s capital Accra.

AviationGhana sources say the airlines is set to finalise the selection of a General Sales Agent (GSA) in Ghana in time for the re-start of their operations.

The maiden Air Senegal flight from Dakar to Accra, which had 62 passengers on-board–7 in business and 55 in economy, landed at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) on Monday Dec 16, 2019.

The airline, which was expected to operate four weekly flights between the two prominent cities in West Africa, ceased servicing Accra’s Kotoka International Airport after a few months for operational reasons.

Senegal’s new national airline, is at the heart of the Emerging Senegal Plan with the ambition of creating a real regional air hub around Blaise Diagne International Airport.

The new national airline, Air Senegal, aims to be the leader in West African air transport by relying on the regional HUB AIBD (Blaise Diagne International Airport). Its mission is to serve both domestic and international lines.

The airline says it “wants to be a citizen company, with international standards, with a business model based on customer satisfaction and operational excellence, while respecting the safety and security standards of the aeronautical industry.”

The airline has a fleet of 9 aircraft made of Airbus A319s, A330-900 Neo, and ATRs.  This equipment was bought by the Senegalese state to revive its defunct national airline.
