Gambia Experience charters Monarch Airlines
Note: you cannot directly book an airline seat from Monarch Airlines but you would have to buy it in person through a travel agency or via online reservations.  The company flies Airbus A300 and Boeing 757 aircraft from Gatwick Airport to Banjul International in the Winter season with departures every Friday at 9:15 am between 05/11/2017 to 25/03/2018 and 01/04/2018 to 29/04/2018.

On Tuesdays the carrier departs between around the 02/11/2017 to 22/03/2018 and 29/03/2018 to 26/04/2018. This gives you the option of embarking on First Class or Economy seats to stay for durations varying outside the standard 7 to 14 nights. As an illustration you it would be possible to buy a seat to The Gambia on a Tuesday for 10 nights, then return to London on a Friday. Another example is to board to Banjul on a Friday for 11 nights and return to London on a Tuesday. Furthermore stays of 10 to 11 days are currently only available.

Sometimes the Gambia Experience lays on summertime flights between Gatwick and Banjul International to provide for a growing demand for travel to the UK from Yundum and for those departing the UK on business to this part of the West Africa region.

Thomas Cook Airlines - Their outbound flights from Gatwick to Banjul operate on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and their ticket prices are different from their inbound back on the same route. This makes it possible to depart for other than 7 nights or two weeks. To illustrate the point you can book a seat out to Gambia on a Wednesday for 9 nights and return on a Friday, or leave the day before the weekend for 12 nights and come back on a Wednesday.

Thomson Fly - The airline operates a weekly flight to Banjul from LGW on a Thursday between the ~ 6 November 2017 to 30 April 2018. As a point of interest Thomson were the first UK operator to include the country in its vacation destinations brochure back in the late 1970s.
