With good sunshine all year round, great beaches and friendly local people, The Gambia really flies under the radar of popular holiday destinations. Upon arriving, you could be forgiven for believing that you’ve stumbled upon a secret holiday destination.

All international flights land at Banjul International Airport (BJL), also known as Yundum International. The airport is only 24km (15 miles) from the capital, Banjul, and only 20-24km (13-15 miles) to many of the Atlantic-washed beach resorts.

The country’s national carrier, Gambia Bird, ceased operation in December 2014, leaving only Titan Airways and Small Planet Airlines (via The Gambia Experience) offering direct flights from London Gatwick (LGW) to Banjul. Both airlines also offer cheap package holidays to Gambia. How long is the flight? Just six hours.

There are a few indirect flights, with Royal Air Maroc via Casablanca, Vueling via Barcelona, or Brussels Airlines via Brussels. The flight times range from 10 to 12 hours, and the cost is more expensive than direct flights.
