Passengers connecting flight in Lome, Togo to destinations in West and Central Africa on ASKY  are safe and are in no way affected by the political unrest in the small West African country.

The airline recently announced that it is to restart flight operations to and from West African cities, Monrovia, Freetown, and Banjul on November 1, 2017.

According to the Togo-based airline, passengers on these flights will benefit from a special luggage allowance of 50kg in Business Class and 40 kg in Economy Class.

ASKY is the pan-African airline that was created by regional institutions: the Bank for Investment and Development (EBID), the West African Development Bank (BOAD) and the ECOBANK Group. ASKY is a commercial company under private law and managed by experienced professionals from Africa.
