Delta Seeks Permission to Fly to Senegal and South Africa

Delta Air Lines announced that it has applied for permission to fly from Atlanta to Johannesburg, South Africa, with an intermediate stop in Dakar, Senegal.  If permitted, the flights will begin in December, 2006.  These flights would mark the only non-charter flights to Africa by a US carrier (North American Airways flies to Ghana, but it’s technically a scheduled charter).  Bringing flights to Africa is a major step forward in bringing the continent into the fold of the world’s economy.  And Senegal can certainly benefit from the tourism—this is a great step by Delta, one that I hope succeeds.
