Arriving In Senegal

Dakar Airport, known in full as Leopold Sedar Senghor International Airport, is currently the main airport serving Senegal, although a new airport is scheduled to overtake operations from this airport. The new Blaise Diagne International Airport will handle a range of long-haul routes and is connected to the city center by rail. It is not currently possible to travel directly from the UAE to Senegal, but this situation may change as the country’s new airport ramps up operations.

Leopold Sedar Senghor International Airport is set within a single terminal complex and provides all of the essential amenities you would need including retail and duty-free shopping alongside restaurants and cafés. Although there are taxis readily available, there are buses for those who are on a budget.
