Purchase, USA, 8 June – The Atlas Air cargo carrier announced last week it would begin offering charter passenger flights between the US oil capital Houston and Angola.

The company, a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc., announced on its webpage that the arrangement was made possible following an agreement with Sonair-Serviço Aereo, Angolan national oil company Sonangol’s carrier, which will provide the aircraft.
