Archipelagos Islands of Sao Tomé and Principe will have a seamless connection to ASKY’s vast network covering West, Central, and South African markets with three weekly flights.
The airline has announced it will start passenger service to the tourism haven from October 15, 2022.
Flights from its hub in Lomé to Sao Tomé will be operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays via Libreville, Gabon while the return flights will be on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
The latest announcement by the Lomé-based airline forms part of its big plan to connect every corner of West and central Africa. Asky in June this year launched a thrice-a-week service to another archipelago Island of Praia, Cabo Verde.
These flights will be operated using a Boeing 737-800 New Generation (NG) aircraft
São Tomé and Príncipe have by far some of the best beaches in the world. Long stretches of soft sand, leaning coconut palms, and often not a soul in sight. Days are spent in warm waters, swimming in discovered rock pools or snorkeling in bays.
