Emirates flies five times a week to Dakar. Situated on the westernmost point of Africa, the Senegalese capital Dakar is home to a rich African heritage, fused with European culture and traditions.
On your Dakar flight, experience Emirates' award-winning service and inflight offerings, including sleeper seats in First Class, sleeperettes in Business Class, and a range of entertainment options, including the latest films, TV shows and music, available on seat-back screens in all classes.
Emirates flights to Dakar arrive at the Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport, around 15km to the north of the city. The easiest means to get into the city is to hire a taxi, though buses are also available. Watch out for touts that sometimes wait around the arrivals area – you have to pay only your taxi driver for your trip into Dakar.
When you fly to Dakar, you can feel the beat to which this vibrant city moves. The local music scene provides continuous soundtrack to the city’s daily hum. Many local establishments host live jazz most nights of the week, along with Mbalax, a fusion of Latin/Caribbean music and African drumming.
Your Dakar flight will take you to an undoubtedly African city, yet much of the colonial architecture throughout Dakar may well make it seem like belonging to Europe. Like its music, Dakar lives by its own unique rhythm.
