Slok Air International (Gambia) Ltd was a scheduled passenger airline registered in Gambia. Its main base is at Banjul International Airport in Banjul, the Gambia.

History[edit]

Slok Air and Slok Air Gambia[edit]

Slok Air International was originally founded in Nigeria by the Slok Group. Its air operators certificate was suspended in March 2004 by the Nigerian government and the airline was subsequently dissolved in November 2004. In the same month the airline was reformed as Slok Air Gambia Limited. Service was again halted in the end of December 2007 due to maintenance and was resumed mid-February 2008, but by July published reports described financial difficulties with the airline, which continued into the autumn of 2008 with creditors filling lawsuits against the firm, seeking payments. By the end of October 2008, despite any formal announcement, press release, or news report, it was no longer possible to book flights with the airline, which had stopped flying.

Slok Air International[edit]

Once again, the airline was renamed to Slok Air International in early 2009. Flights re-commenced in February of the same year.
