 DKR Leopold Sedar Senghor Airport Info & Guide

Leopold Sedar Senghor International AirportWhere is Leopold Sedar Senghor Airport?
Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport (French: Aéroport International Léopold Sédar Senghor) (IATA: DKR, ICAO: GOOY) is an international airport serving Dakar, the capital of Senegal. The airport is situated near the town of Yoff, north of Dakar. It was known as Dakar Yoff International Airport (French: Aéroport International de Dakar Yoff) until 9 October 1996, when it was renamed in honor of Léopold Sédar Senghor, the first president of Senegal.

The airport can handle aircraft up to the size of the Boeing 747 jets. In 2007, the airport served about 2,100,000 passengers.

In 2007, Patrick Smith, author of the Ask the Pilot column for Salon.com, called it the "World's Worst Airport", commenting that he found there "only squalor, an unnerving sense of confinement and to some extent danger".
