Gambia Bird (Banjul) is planning to launch operations later this summer as a joint venture between the Gambian government and Flynext (Nuremberg). The new airline plans to initially serve Conakry Dakar Yoff-Léopold Sédar Senghor International, Freetown, Lagos from Banjul with an A319-100 operated by Flynext as well as destinations in Spain and the UK where it will also cooperate with tour operators.
