BREAKING: TUI to operate direct flights to Gambia from November 2020
U.K. based airline TUI will commence direct flights to The Gambia from Sunday 1st November 2020. A two weeks flight only deal from Manchester to Banjul will cost £539 without baggage.
The move comes following the collapse of Thomas Cook Airlines which operated direct flights to Banjul form U.K. for nearly two decades. Although tickets are slightly higher than a typical Thomas Cook flight, regular direct flights availability is a welcome development for thousands of visitors to the tiny West African nation which depends on Tourism as a major foreign exchange earner.
TUI Will operate direct flights from Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham airports from November 2020 to April 2021.
This is a welcomed news for thousands of business owners, employees, petty traders, U.K. diaspora Gambians and visitors who were devastated by the news of the collapse of Thomas Cook Airlines which operated cheap and direct flights to The Gambia from three major U.K. airports.
