TAAG Angola Commences New Luanda-Madrid Service
TAAG Angola Airlines has scaled to 12 international destinations with the launch of a new service to Madrid in Spain with effect from 27 June 2022.
The inaugural flight departed Luanda at 9:00 a.m. and arrived Madrid at 5:15 p.m. A delegation of government officials from Angola and Spain, TAAG board members, business agencies/chambers, and pioneer passengers were onboard the flight.
The new route Luanda-Madrid-Luanda route is operated two times a week by a Boeing 777-300ER offering 293 seats, including 12 seats in business plus class, 56 seats in standard business class, and 225 seats in economy class.
The new service allows passengers travelling from Angola to connect Madrid as a destination or stopover to multiple European cities within the IBERIA network with a new codeshare partnership agreement signed in May.
The codeshare and interline agreement enable passengers from Luanda to have a unique ticket paid in Kwanzas, and access Madrid as a destination or stopover to a connecting flight (operated by IBERIA) to multiple cities in Europe, including Porto, Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Rome, Milan, Bologna, Brussels, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia, Coruña, Vigo, Alicante, Bilbao etc.
Passengers will benefit from more destinations for tourism purposes and entrepreneurs aiming to invest in Angola or other geographies within TAAG´s network (vice-versa) now have multiple possibilities for Europe-Africa-Latin America connections.
