Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport Reviews (12)
The airport is okay but the aggressive hawkers who set the tone for the rest of your stay in Senegal are a disgrace. The Police and Security don’t act and on my last visit joined in the corruption by fining my wife for parking in a perfectly legitimate parking space – no receipt for the paid fine. President Wade’s brave attempts at bringing his country into a modern world economy are being strangled by the aggressive and unpleasant nature of much of the beautiful countries inhabitants. Go to Bamako instead – much nicer.
I Had No Problems
Just visited Senegal in November and didn’t have any problems other than my own of not knowing the language. People I met were quite understanding and helpful. I live the boy scouts code, "Be Prepared" Common Sense Travel Tips: 1. Carry baby wipes for those times when toilet paper is not available. 2. NEVER put ID/money/credit cards in baggage, ALWAYS keep it on you. 3. Put valuables (ie expensive gifts) in carry on luggage
I’m Senegalese and I arrived in Yoff airport and my luggage was late because of some strike in Belgium, then I had to come back next day to get them, and when I came, I discovered that one of my bags was open by breaking the lock and 13 new cellphones were missing and two pairs of ladies shoes. It’s very shameful, somebody comes from far away and bring gifts for their family and friends. Shameful airport.
Anyone who says Dakar airport is good, are in denial,…African airports are one of the most corrupt airports in the world,.. the rest live with lies and pretense!
Wallet Stolen By Airport Security
I was in transit from Abidjan to Dakar to Atlanta on Jan. 2, 2008. My flight was at 3:25 a.m. I went through 5 security checkpoints. The very last one was before we boarded the plane. Airport Security searched my backpack and as I was speaking with a friend who happened to be on the same flight, the guard slipped out my wallet. I didn’t see it happen, but this was the only check point that hand checked my backpack. All the other security checks were through screening machines. I was stranded for 24 hours without any money, credit cards or drivers’ license. I would definitely not recommend anybody ever go through Dakar. Interesting thing, as I walked out the doors to take the shuttle to the plane, the 4 security guards were looking at me laughing and talking. I guess they got a kick out of stealing my wallet when they are supposed to be providing security service to all people.
0n the 3/06/07 I was in transit in Dakar airport. My bag pack was stolen while I was in transit. The airport structure is quite bad since you have to walk out of the airport to get a connecting flight. Outside, you have to run pass 50 + locals who want to help with luggage. There is no security or police officers.
I recently had to switch flights at Yoff, and it was a truly horrible experience. NO ONE should ever fly here, avoid at all costs. Security is awful and corrupt. If you have to go outside beware of your bags being stolen off your back.
A Very Bad Airport
The Dakar Airport is very limited for international passengers. The structure is bad. The transit area does not have a working phone. There is no clean bathroom. Toilet paper, forgot it! There is a bad environment of corruption, inclusive for the workers of local AHS (Aviation Handling Services). All you need you must to pay in form of gratuity. Arbitrariness is very common. If you are not visiting Senegal, and are just an in-transit passenger, be strongly advised to avoid this airport, and if possible, consider another route!
This airport is professionally managed. Acceptable service.
Much safer since 2006 Touts only want to change Euro coins for CFA francs they have received as tips. Careful of the step down onto the street on exiting because luggage carts can tip up and spill your suitcases.
Yoff airport has been made much safer recently. Exiting passengers are channelled through a narrow space in the crowd barrier. Be careful of the steep step onto the street though because luggage trolleys can tip over. Avoid touts and take a genuine yellow and black taxi. Most of the young men lounging around only want to exchange the Euro coins they have received as tips into CFA francs. They are not trying to abduct you!!

One of the worst airports in the world I have been to, and I have been to a lot. Immigration is very slow for both, in and out of the country. Local airport workers will try to help you get your luggage fast but then will ask for money so you must have something with you, if you have small local currency is better, but that doesn’t stop them to ask you for Euros or US Dollars. Once you are finally out, dozens of locals will come to try to sell you SIM CARDS and try to get you into their taxis – DO NOT DO IT – for that reason is a must to have someone to wait for you there. Going out you’ll find a terminal without A/C and very slow lines for check in, so come early; after you finally have gone through passport control you have a very small waiting area, if you travel Air France to Paris as I did you will have a big waiting room, no windows at all, but with enough A/C. Just hope there will be no power cuts because when the electricity comes back the A/C won’t work, and remember, there are no windows. The only airport in Western Africa that is worth something is in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, but do not get big hopes for it.
