TAAG Linhas Aéreas de Angola, as part of its sustainable growth plan, has just revised its flight schedule with significant adjustments to its intercontinental services from Luanda.
Accordingly, connections to Havana will resume and the new LuandaMadrid route, inaugurated in June this year, will have a weekly increase in flights in response to increasing demand and aircraft occupancy.
The route to Cuba was interrupted during the pandemic and conditions were met for reconnecting between two countries that share strong historical links (mainly during the Angolan War of Independence, supported by Cuban troops to counter the Portuguese) and exchange of passengers , namely with the entry into the Angolan territory of the corporate segment (Cuban doctors and teachers) and travel related to tourism, education and healthcare in the opposite direction.
From November 8, flights will resume, with departures from Luanda Havana operated by a Boeing 777300ER, the company’s largest with 293 seats, with fortnightly frequencies in November, weekly frequencies in December and again fortnightly frequencies in February 2023.
Routes to Madrid will continue to be operated with the Airbus A330200 crewrented from Portugal’s HiFly, which can accommodate up to 298 passengers, and will now have three weekly frequencies, with the addition of the new Tuesday flight.
