  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Senegal flight deals.
  • If you are traveling to Senegal for trips to multiple locations, it would be best to schedule a flight to Dakar Blaise Diagne Airport (DSS). This is because this is a major airport in the country and is centrally located, and you can easily access other parts of the country from here.
  • When you are visiting the Tambacounda region renowned for its rich djembe, heritage, and dance culture, you can take a domestic flight from Blaise Diagne Airport (DSS) to Bakel Airport (BXE).
  • Most flights from the USA to Senegal arrive at the Senegalese airport between 2:00 and 4:30. As such, you need to book a driver or car prior to your arrival to ensure a smooth arrival process.
  • If you need a quick bite after landing at Blaise Diagne Airport, head to MIA Bakery and Café or LEO Bistro Bar on the airside. Alternatively, you can settle for SECO Cafeteria on the landside.
  • Senegal is a Muslim state. As such, if you are visiting the country around periods like Ramadan, you can expect a rise in flight ticket prices.
  • If you want to move from Dakar to Casamance, you can take a domestic flight to Zinguinchor Airport (ZIG) 8 miles from the city center, or Cap Skirring Airport (CSK) 110 miles from the city center.
  • Even though you can find direct flights, some flights from the USA to Senegal might require a layover in Europe. You can compare the prices and choose the most appropriate through KAYAK.
  • When flying to Senegal, every child under the age of 5 should be accompanied by a family member or legal guardian aged at least 16. Additionally, they are responsible for the child throughout the journey.

FAQs - booking Senegal flights

  • I am traveling to Senegal to visit Lake Retba, which airport should I fly to?

    If you are visiting Senegal’s magnificent Lake Retba, it would be advisable to book a flight to Blaise Diagne International Airport. From here, you will need a taxi service to get to the lake. This is because, for one, a part of the road towards Lake Retba is unpaved and has no road signs. Drivers offering taxi services in the area are familiar with the roads and can orient themselves efficiently. You can still consider using Senegalese public transport.

  • How many international airports are there in Senegal?

    There are two main international airports in Senegal. These include Blaise Diagne International Airport (DSS) and Leopold Sedar Senghor Airport (DKR). Both airports are in Dakar, the capital of Senegal.  However, since 2017 when the Blaise Diagne Airport was opened and took over international passenger flights, Leopold Sedar Senghor Airport mainly handles international cargo flights.

  • Do US citizens require a Visa to travel to Senegal?

    No, they do not. At the moment, Senegalese authorities no longer require US citizens to obtain a visa for stays less than 90 days. However, if you are planning to stay longer, you will need to obtain a visa for the stay. This can be done at either the Embassy of Senegal in Washington, D.C., or at the Senegalese Consulate, New York.

  • Can I rent a car at Ziguinchor Airport?

    There are several places to visit in Zinguinchor, the main town of the Casamance region. The best way to travel from the airport to these places is by rental car. Though Zinguinchor Airport has no onsite rental counters, there are rental car agencies near the airport. The agencies can drop your car at the airport after making an online reservation.

  • Are there nonstop flights to Senegal?

    Yes, there are. However, in the United States, you should note that the only airport where you can find such flights to Dakar is JFK New York. The direct journey will take approximately 7h 30min. The only airlines offering this service, however, are Delta Airlines and Air Senegal.

  • What airport should I fly into when visiting Saint Louis?

    Saint Louis is an old town on Senegal’s northwest coast renowned for its colonial architecture. You can get a domestic flight from Blaise Diagne Airport to Saint-Louis Airport (XLS) to visit the town. The airport is approximately 7.5 miles from the city center and has several ground transportation alternatives to comfortably get you there.

  • What is the luggage policy when flying to Senegal?

    Regulations governing luggage might vary from one airline to the other. Additionally, for some airlines such as Air Senegal, the number and weight of luggage allowed depends on the class you are traveling in. Therefore, you will be required to pay an extra fee for luggage that surpasses your free luggage allowance. Additionally, checking in the luggage has been made easier for you thanks to the online checking system. However, some essential luggage such as baby bags is allowed on board. Children are typically allowed a baggage allowance equal to adults.

  • Which bus services can I use from Blaise Diagne Airport to the city center?

    There are two bus services from Blaise Diagne Airport to the city center. Aerobus offers express routes seven times daily from the airport to the city center. Dakar Dem Dikk has a bus leaving every thirty minutes from the airport to the city center. A ride with Dakar Dem Dikk will take longer than one on Aerobus, but it is cheaper.

  • Is there a lounge from where I can work at Blaise Diagne Airport?

    Unfortunately, there is no dedicated workspace at the Blaise Diagne Airport. Nonetheless, if you want to quickly catch up on work before leaving the airport, you can do so at one of two lounges; Odysee Lounge next to gate 1 on the departures level and Salon Infinite near gate 1. These lounges have scanners, printers, computers, Wi-Fi, and scanners to support your work.

  • Do ladies have to cover up when leaving the airports in Senegal?

    Though Senegal is a primarily Muslim country, female visitors do not have to cover their hair, shoulders, knees, and heads when leaving the airport in most places. In large cities and villages, most of the local ladies do not wear hijabs, so you will not disrespect the culture or get into trouble by not covering yourself.

Delta needs to step up the meals and snacks. They have been serving the same two meals for three years.... It is time to change it up.

Pros: "Boarding: c'mon...too many groups and subgroups. Radiculous!"
Cons: "STOP the non-sense of so many boarding goups. What happened to Common Sense boarding? Ill and needing add'l medical help, First Class, Plus Class, then General Boarding. Give me a Break with all the other subgoups for Delta, all B. S. !!"
Pros: "great crew !"
Cons: "i had to go through security like 3 times but was never informed why. seats could be a little more spacious."
Pros: "Having the whole center three seats to myself. The food and beverages were really good as well."
Cons: "Both flights were significantly late to depart. Also the WiFi on the transatlantic flight was out."
Cons: "The ticketing counter gave very bad guidance for when I arrived, thus refusing to allow me to check my bag. And insisting that I had to cancel my skymiles ticket and purchasing a new ticket. Show up at least 2 hours before at DCA for intl flights, employee incompetence could cost you $$$$"
Pros: "We had exit row seat, most uncomfortable ever, video devices both broken. Will never sit in exit row again would have been better off in basic economy"
Cons: "Fix broken seats and tv screens"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Business aisles are one way only, very impractical. Bathrooms are tiny unlike 777 and the seats are not good, i dislike the narrow feel of the feet well and there is noooo storage for shoes or amything else..what fail. And the door thing is a joke. I will make zero effort to fly this equipment...777 is the best after loosing the 747."
Pros: "Staff was very good."
Cons: "Mother Nature was not nice, the early part of the trip was turbulent, but the crew did a great job of minimizing it."
Pros: "The crew was fine, flight was completely full and they were very prompt in their service. The power outlets didn’t work. The lights were on, but when I plugged in they didn’t charge."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Seats very close together for a flight that lasts over 5 hours."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"

Not the best crew. Extremely annoying with mask wearing. Even when I was eating and drinking they would come up to you to tell you to wear your mask. Extremely annoying.

Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"
Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"
Cons: "I'd appreciate a better selection of food and drinks, even if I have to pay for the drinks."
Pros: "Flight attendant was rude to my non French speaking 12 year old. He ripped his charger out of the USB port and threw it at him."
Cons: "TSA was sketchy and gave a FULL search, part down, etc. I kept asking and the excuse kept changing. Final excuse ridiculous! Flight attendant could have not treated my son as he way he did. I was unaware that the usb cord being inputted during taxiing As was my son. He was horrible to him!!"
Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."
Pros: "Air France personnel is always really helpful"
Cons: "Food and comfort in short haul are not the best - but the flight is short..."

Everything could have been better. The food was bad, the service was bad, and the flight staff were not very friendly.

I had surgery on both of my legs in February 2022 and the flight was booked in March. The purpose of booking business class was to have an opportunity to stretch my legs due to the surgery. The flight going and coming was so difficult for me because the seats were broken, I have video and pictures of this horrible flight and a report from my surgeon regarding the this. It is unfortunate that I will have to get a lawyer to get a refund and sue this airline. I have sent them correspondence regarding the incident as well as the Better Business Bureau and they refuse to respond.

After paying for business class, we were given anything but business. They used a rented plan from China that had no inflight entertainment, the seats were broken and besides that, we had a 15-hour layover in Dakar. The same problems existed on the return flight. The flight from New York to Baltimore was the worst, the flight attendance decided to have a personal conversation and I am guessing that because there were only three passengers in business class, that they did not have to give the emergency announcement and proceeded to carry on their personal conversation during the entire flight. Worst travel experience of my life!

First time in my life that i had a 5hrs delay with no agent to give us any explanation...We had a very bad experience with Air Senegal...while Senegal is a nice country to visit but the Air Sénégal airline is very bad in customer service...

normal business seats with sufficient leg room. good food. no entertainment whatsoever

Very comfortable flat bed. Perfect for overnight sleeping. Interesting that a dozen wheel chairs were provided to the elderly that have been walking teh whole evening only for them to board eaely. Made a joke that HC408 stood fo handicapped.

Flat bed !!!! and even free wifi !!! offered in business class. Price was 50% of competition. I came from ABJ and price was the same. Had phantastic fresh ornage juice for breakfast. All flights over the atlantic are like that. The rechecking of luggage and waiting time to go in same plane to BWI was a bit of a pain. Might make more sense to continue travel directly in JFK. For example we arrived early at 6 am in JFK but continuation at 9am and security only opens at 7.30am

This would have been an okay flight, had it not been for the following. At the boarding line they had another line for luggage control of some kind, basically they weighed your carry on luggage together with your personal item together (in my case my backpack), and if it was overweight they asked for 125 euros right then and there. We basically couldn’t board without forking over the 125 euros. It was insane the price. I’ve paid maybe 50 euros in the past for overweight carry ons but 125, more than double is unjust. I flew TAP from Florence to Lisbon and we had no such treatment nor weighing of our carry ons. And then when we flew from Lisbon to JFK, they had a whole line of individuals asking them to fork over the 125 euros. Their weight limitations is considerably low compared to other airlines. Very upset. In addition the bathroom on board had a good amount of water (or maybe even pee) in the bathroom floor. In addition the the garbage slot in the bathroom was over flowing. This was at the start of the flight so it was clear that no one had cleaned the bathroom. In addition they tray tables were also not clean. Mine was covered in a sticky substance and I ended up having to wipe it down myself. I did my best to avoid using the bathroom again during this 7 hour flight. And when I told the stewardess of the bathroom, she said it wasn’t their job to clean the bathroom, which could be true I guess. You would think an airline was more sanitary especially after COVID. Would Not fly TAP again and do not recommend. Spend your money elsewhere.

Cons: "Snack at end of flight was good but lunch was not good and the dinner in Executive Class going over was not good"
Pros: "seat was very comfortable with good leg room. Crew was very polite"
Cons: "coming thru the cabin for garbage pickup more often"
Pros: "Newer planes, good service"
Cons: "The terminal in Lisbon is poor. Poor food choices. Dirty bathrooms. And keep an eye on the change you get back, 2 out of 2 purchases they tried to shortchange me... one was for over 2 euros."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew friendly on airport and flight. Plane was clean and sits were ok."
Cons: "The food could have been better."
Cons: "It was cancelled with less than 12hrs notice !! I had to rebook on another airline costing more than twice as much !!"
Pros: "Great crew. That’s about it."
Cons: "Absolutely horrible business class on the A330-343. Honestly, they should be ashamed of flying this airplane. They have four of these from Singapore Airlines and of course on both flights I was unlucky enough to get stuck with it. The cabin looks horribly outdated, is worn out, and smells."
Pros: "Flight was more spacious on the way back to Boston"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good. The hot meal was very good."
Cons: "We would have appreciated water being served between the meals; it was a very long time with nothing.The cold meal was just ok. We paid extra for our seats and were very disappointed at being stuck in the middle where it is difficult to move or get up. It would have been nice to be able to actually"
Pros: "Not much. Check in luggage charges destroyed the experience, this was not disclosed on the ticket itinerary"
Cons: "TAP charges $120 1st checkin bag, this was not disclosed on the itinerary or kayak site when we book the ticket. We expect kayak to refund this."

Old planes that are not being maintained with at least basic cleaning. Plane smells awful, bathrooms not cleaned either. Customer service probably one of the worst I have experienced.

I thought it was great because the seats were really comfortable for the long flight. The food was just ok, and could have been a bit better.

Pros: "Leg room was dangerously ridiculously tight."
Cons: "My daughter was not allowed entrance into Morocco. It was a horrible scary experience. Her US issued refugee permanent residence travel document was rejected. In our international travels this has never happened. Marco Air should have caught this before we left the US."
Pros: "Crew great. Seats great, plenty of room."
Cons: "Having to board a bus, drive 5 minutes to the end of the runway, then walk across the tarmac to board is no way to board a plane in this century. Gladly for us,it was not raining."
Pros: "Yes , everything was good till I received my bag and it was cut like some one cut it by a harp tool Am really upset & don’t know why I need an explanation about that"
Cons: "There was a two hours delay that make all the passengers got worried Second point caring of luggage & my bag was cut & Lots of things are broken inside That’s first to be happened with me on any flight before"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "They could have not been 2.5 hours late leaving my origin city and causing me to miss both of my connecting flights"
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle. There was no rhyme or reason and that led to it taking forever. The flight staff were rude and not very responsive. Among many things, they ran into a nearby elderly passengers seat several times with food/beverage carts and did not apologize."
Pros: "Plane was pretty clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was trash, tho. They took my seats to give to a family that was traveling together and the flight attendant looked at me like I was stupid and said "well, they're traveling together" as if I and my 4 year old child are not traveling together. Terrible."
Pros: "Crew was better on this flight but still not great."
Cons: "Food was terrible, lost our luggage"
Pros: "Nothing. I fly long haul international flights like this at least twice a year and this was the worst experience I've had in 10 years."
Cons: "Crew was rude, plane was uncomfortable, food was terrible, they canceled and rescheduled our flights for different days AND lost our luggage. Horrible."
