This follows completion of the designation processes necessary for the airline to operate regional and international flights to Accra.
Gambia Bird Ltd. operates the Airbus A319-100 -- one of the most efficient and trusted aircraft. It has 138 seats with 25 in Premium Economy and 113 seats in Economy Class.
Mr. Malleh Sallah, the Chief Administration Officer of Gambia Bird Airlines Limited, operator of the airline, said: “We are connecting the whole of West Africa and Accra is a piece of the puzzle. Accra is an important hub in the sub-region and it is a very important airport for us.
“We want to make it possible to travel within the West African sub-region. We are here to make travel easier for all of West Africa and to link West Africa to Chine. We will provide a safe, reliable, and efficient service with the set-up that we have.”
Karsten Balke, Chief Commercial Officer of Gambia Bird Airlines Limited, said: “We have researched the prices within the sub-region and we have priced it to make it one of the lowest on the market. We are starting with three flights to Accra, and we aim to do daily flights to Accra shortly.”
The airline also operates flights to Monrovia, Banjul, Dakar, Freetown, Conakry, London and Barcelona.
The A319 is one of the smaller members of Airbus' highly successful single-aisle airliner family currently in service, and competes with Boeing's 737-300 and 737-700.
