Here’s something we don’t see too often: cheap premium economy deals to Senegal. East Coast travelers can score a fantastic deal from New York (JFK) to Dakar (DSS) for under $2,000 round-trip.

Here’s what you need to know about this deal!

Fare Deal — Details

ITA Airways

This is a round-trip deal on ITA Airways between New York-JFK and Dakar, with a stop in Rome each way.

What’s different about this deal is that all legs are in premium economy — which is rare for flights to Africa, as many flights are either in business or economy.

ITA flies its Airbus A330-900neo aircraft on the flights to and from Rome and the Airbus A321neo to and from Dakar. Both offer extra legroom and expanded food and beverage options.

If you’re interested in this deal, play with some dates on Google Flights and then book directly with ITA for the best deal:

  • Class: Premium economy
  • Route: New York (JFK) to Dakar (DSS)
  • Dates: September through November 2024; January through March 2025
  • Rates: As low as $1,754 round-trip

ITA is Italy’s flag carrier and was founded in 2020 after Alitalia went bankrupt. The airline is a member of the SkyTeam alliance.

Hot Tip:

November to February is the ideal time to visit Dakar due to the pleasant weather during the cooler dry season.

How to Book

You shouldn’t have trouble finding dates that work, as there is availability between September and March next year for these lower rates, excluding December.

Once you’ve picked travel dates, make sure to book your flights using a credit card to maximize flight purchases. Here are some of the best travel cards out right now:

Final Thoughts

This is an excellent deal, mainly because it’s a true premium economy deal, not a mixed-cabin fare. Still, like many cheap flight deals, this one likely won’t last long, so make sure to book ASAP before it’s gone!
