Turkish Airlines has added Banjul to its unrivalled list of African destinations.
The airline now flies twice a week (Mondays and Fridays) between the Gambian capital and Istanbul, via Dakar in Senegal.
The coastal city of Banjul is the gateway to Gambia’s thriving tourism industry, which is built around its famous Atlantic beaches and abundant wildlife.
PICS: This might be the busiest airport in the world come 2023
Banjul takes the number of African destinations served by Turkish Airlines to 54 in total. Some of its other African destinations include Accra in Ghana and Bamako in Mali.
It even flies to Mogadishu in Somalia, a destination very, very few airlines go to.
