Call center
It is possible to obtain information on departures, arrivals, delays and other information by telephone calling the airport to the numbers in the contact page accessible via the top menu of this page.
Luggage scales
Each airline flying to Senegal impose a different baggage allowance. It is important that every traveler comply with those rules under threat of being required to pay excess baggage fees that can be prohibitive. It is therefore recommended to weigh your luggage before you get to the airport. However, it is possible to weigh them on the balances available at check-in counters in order to lighten them if necessary.
Cabin baggage
Just like checked baggage, cabin baggage must meet a maximum size and weight. Airlines propose in the check-in area boxes to check if your cabin baggage meets the standards. Some passengers try at the time of boarding to carry more or different bags that those validated at check-in. They are exposed to leave their bags at the airport or to pay excess baggage fees in addition to delay the takeoff to the detriment of all travelers.
Last minute tickets
Passengers who have not had the time to buy their tickets or have missed their flights have the option to purchase a ticket at the airport (at generally higher rates). Correspondents of different travel agencies can offer these services.
To ensure the comfort of its passengers and visitors, Dakar airport offers a medical service for health emergencies (available defibrillators). A pharmacy is also established behind the parking lot (+221 33 820 01 01).
