The director of Air Senegal International has been sacked

The director general of the airline Air Senegal Ibrahima Kane has been dismissed, after several recriminations from passengers in recent weeks about the quality of service, the company announced.
Mr Kane, in post since April 2019, has been replaced by El Hadji Badara Fall, a pilot who was previously an adviser to the Ministry of Air Transport, the state-owned national airline said on its website.
The replacement came after a meeting of the Board of Directors on 12 July 2022.
The company’s website does not specify the reasons for this change, which nevertheless comes at a time when complaints against the company have multiplied in recent weeks. Several passengers have complained about delays, sometimes lasting several hours, flight cancellations and, according to the local press, lost luggage.
The company’s communications department could not be reached on Wednesday. Created in 2016, the company Air Senegal is owned by the State of Senegal through the Caisse de dépôts et de consignation (CDC), a Senegalese public bank. With ten aircraft, it serves 24 destinations in Africa, Europe and America.
Air Sénégal has taken over from Senegal Airlines, which was mostly privately owned and dissolved in 2016.
