Blog > Direct flights to The Gambia will resume in December
We are delighted to confirm that we will be operating direct flights to The Gambia from London Gatwick during December, with standard and star class available.
After eight months of suspended operations, we are very excited to announce that direct flights to The Gambia from the UK will be available once again. We have many customers who have been waiting months and months to travel to and from The Gambia, and who are desperate to see friends and family over the holidays. Thank you for your patience and understanding you have shown us these past weeks and months, we appreciate it has been a very uncertain time while we have been trying to arrange the best options for our customers in the face of many difficult challenges.
The flights will depart from London Gatwick North Terminal with award-winning Titan Airways, return flights will have a short touchdown in Las Palmas for an essential crew change. Unfortunately we will not be able to operate from Manchester until 18th January 2021, however our programme will continue to be reviewed in light of the rapidly changing situation.
The Gambia requires arriving passengers to be in possession of a negative Covid-19 test result dated no earlier than 72hrs (three days) prior to travel. A large number of customers have had concerns about getting test results back just after a weekend so we have taken the decision to move our flight day to a Wednesday to help eliminate any additional worry customers might have in this respect.
As the FCDO is still advising against all but essential travel, customers wanting to travel on a package holiday will need to sign an indemnity form, and we strongly urge everyone to obtain travel insurance that protects against Covid-19 when travelling.
