Maputo, Mozambique, 21 Sept – Mozambican airline, Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM) is due in November to launch regular flights between Maputo and Luanda, the capital of Angola, the Pana news agency reported.

“The new route will contribute to a rise in cooperation in business and bring the two countries, which share a language and historical relationship, closer together,” said the managing director of Lam, José Viegas.

The new route also aims to provide opportunities for links to Johannesburg (South Africa), Dar-es-Salaam (Tanzania) and Nairobi (Kenya):

According to LAM there will be two flights per week between Mozambique and Angola.

In the last few months Lam has taken delivery of two new Brazilian manufactured Embraer 190 aircraft, with capacity to carry 94 passengers each.

In 2008 LAM acquired two Canadian-made Bombarider Q-400 turbo-prop aircraft. (macauhub)
