Angolan air carrier ServisAir closes until “further notice”

6 July 2010

Luanda, Angola, 6 July – Angolan airline ServisAir last week stopped operating, justifying its decision, in a statement “due to force majeure.”

In a statement published in the Angolan press, ServisAir said that “as of today, Friday” all flights are cancelled “until further notice.”

ServisAir started operating, in the domestic and charter flight sector, around two months ago, on the Lubango and Cabinda routes, with two MD-82 aircraft as well as two Boeing 727-200s.

This is the second airline to stop operating in Angola this year, after Air Gemini, linked to the Escom group of Portuguese financial group Espírito Santo, also went through some difficulties, and only continued partially after its sale. (macauhub)
