UK specialist operator to fly later this week
Specialist operator The Gambia Experience says it aims to restart flights to the West African destination by the end of this week.
Part of UK-based Serenity Holidays, the operator made the decision “in anticipation” of the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office changing its travel advice for the country after it appears that “a peaceful political situation has been reached” in Gambia following political unrest in recent weeks.
In a travel advice statement posted on its website, the firm says it is liaising with the FCO to “ensure that the travel advice is appropriate to the situation on the ground.”
Former Gambian president Yahya Jammeh, who had refused to accept the country’s December election, left over the weekend after the threat of military intervention from neighbouring states.
The Gambia Experience is still offering alternative holidays to Cape Verde and Goa to customers scheduled to travel to Gambia up to January 31.
Thomas Cook, which flew thousands of tourists home from the country last week, cancelled its program to the Gambia until January 31. It says that a resumption of its services is dependent on a change to FCO advice.
