BANJUL, The Gambia–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Travel within West Africa and to Europe has just become even easier to book: all flights by Gambia Bird can now be booked online through the airline’s website. Customers can search for seats either for a specific travel date or in a “low fare calendar” which displays the cheapest tickets for an entire month. Until now, Gambia Bird tickets have been exclusively available through the airline’s telephone booking hotline, tour operators and travel agents. Gambia Bird serves Banjul (The Gambia) and Freetown (Sierra Leone) twice-weekly from London-Gatwick.

Karsten Balke, Chief Commercial Officer of Gambia Bird Airlines: “The launch of our new online booking system sees us responding to a request that was voiced by many customers: they wanted to be able to book our flights directly and easily from their homes, the office or while on the road. Passengers who prefer to receive personal advice can continue to book through our hotline or a travel agency partner.”

In addition to its investments in online services, Gambia Bird also continues to improve its on-board offering. In Economy Class passengers can expect even more comfort from the end of April 2013, as most of the seats in this class now have a larger seat pitch of 31 inches or more. Additionally, passengers in Premium Class are served an exclusive three-course menu and have a greater baggage allowance. All Gambia Bird flights are operated in a two-class configuration with Premium and Economy Class.
