TAAG Begins Cargo Operations From New Luanda International Airport

TAAG Angola Airlines has commenced regular cargo operations from the new Luanda International Airport on 29 January 2024. The service is operated weekly (every Monday) connecting Luanda to Lagos and Brazzaville with Boeing 737-800 Freighter

Following the company growth and commercial dynamics focused on the development of the cargo business segment, TAAG Angola Airlines highlights that regular cargo flights operated by the Company from the New Luanda International Airport are now live. A weekly cargo service (departing from Luanda every Monday) connects Angola to regional destinations in Lagos in Nigeria and Brazzaville in Republic of Congo.

Overall, customers and partners from the cargo market niche will benefit from greater convenience, service availability and solutions for import & export within the region.

This is another milestone in TAAG's ongoing expansion process, bonded with the company's previous announcement related to the incorporation of the freighter Boeing 737-800BCF into its fleet. The Boeing 737-800 D2-TBU is capable of transporting up to 23.9t of cargo.

The main deck of the Boeing 737 Freighter offers 141.5m³ of cargo space, while the lower deck provides 43.7m³ of space for bulk cargo. The freighter has the capacity for 11 pallet positions that can accommodate 10 contoured 96in x 125in pallets.

In January 2024, TAAG Angola Airlines moved approximately 1000 tons of diverse cargo between domestic, regional, and international destinations.

The establishment of regular cargo flights from the New Luanda International Airport is aligned with the country/transport ecosystem vision to leverage this major airport infrastructure while consolidating Luanda as a regional hub, empowered by its geostrategic location.

TAAG Angola Airlines is therefore committed to being competitive and a sustainable company, consolidating its position and footprint in the African air cargo market.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
