Dakar is one of Africa's transport hubs, with links across Africa, Europe and America.
Dakar's current airport, Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport, is slated to close once the new airport opens – which might be as early as 2018. Groupe Transair is the only carrier making domestic flights inside Senegal, with service between Dakar, Ziguinchor and Cap Skirring.
Some major airlines service Senegal, many with offices in Dakar:
Kenya Airways (www.kenya-airways.com)
TAP Portugal (www.flytap.com)
Departure tax is included in the price of a ticket.
