I used to live in London and when I went back to South Africa for a visit I always applied these rules of thumb to make sure I maximised my air ticket savings. It works pretty well and it allowed me to spend the amount that I save on ticket prices where it does the most good at the time. My holiday.
If you are flying to the Gambia to go and see the incredible variety of birdlife, do a spot of fishing or just to laze around on the beach, you are in for a really good time. See some Gambia holiday trip reports of other people who have done the same thing.
Gambia International Airlines (GIA) was the national carrier but due to operational problems they were forced to shut down in 2007. Currently, there is no national airline operating in Gambia.
But there are a number of other airlines that do travel to this destination such as US Airways, Lufthansa, Etihad Airways and Air Nigeria.
There is one major airport within the country which handles all the overseas air traffic. It's served by scheduled and charter flights to and from western Europe and other African states, with a few connections to other parts of the world.
It is possible to charter flights to Gambia using companies such as Flythomascook, Monarch, Condor, Arik Air and TUIfly.
To get around domestically, you will probably be better off using the roads or travelling by boat because the country is so small.
