Flights resume

More than three international airlines have resumed flights to and from the Banjul International Airport during the past weeks. 

This resumption of service could be a positive sign for the country's tourism industry, which is currently struggling to rebound from COVID-19.  

Spain's largest airline, Vueling has already re-started services from Banjul to Barcelone, with flights operating every week. 

An official at the airport disclosed that there are more than three international airlines that are currently operating at the airport.  

"Right now, we have Turkish Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Asky Airlines, Vueling Airlines and Senegal Airlines," he said. 

The Gambia Experience also announced this week: " We are delighted to confirm that we will be operating direct flights to The Gambia from London Gatwick North Terminal during December, with both standard and star class seats available." 

Meanwhile, 123 people have died from Covid-19 in The Gambia and the total caseload stands at 3,742.
