This will be achieved through our new A330-900 NEO aircraft and on the quality of service offered throughout the passenger's journey, from the time one reserves their plane ticket, to the delivery of one’s luggage upon arrival at their final destination. Our creed is to ensure that each of our customers have an exceptional experience, that of "Teranga", which exemplifies our legendary Senegalese hospitality”,
