Dakar-Yoff-Leopold Sedal Senghor International Airport

Dakar-Yoff-Leopold Sedal Senghor International Airport is an international air facility in Dakar, Senegal.

The unusually long named airport, the most significant airport in Senegal, can handle airplanes up to the size of the Boeing 747 jets. It used to be one of the five main hubs of the now defunct multi-national airline, Air Afrique[?]. The airport was named after Leopold Senghor, president of Senegal from 1960 to 1980.
