16 February 2012

Beijing, China, 16 Feb – TAAG Angola Airlines will this March begin offering a second weekly flight between Luanda and Beijing, the company’s representative in the Chinese capital announced.

Cited by Angolan news agency Angop, Inácio Silva said on Wednesday that the second weekly flight was justified due to the growing relationship between Angola and China.

TAAG has been using a 254-seat Boeing 777-200 ER on the route since November 2007 and until last January was the only company with a direct flight from Africa to Beijing, serving as a link between the African continent and China.

Besides Beijing, TAAG also offers direct international flights to the cities of Lisbon, Porto, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Dubai, Havana, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Kinshasa, São Tomé and Praia.

TAAG has been undergoing a major reorganisation process since 2008 to enhance the company’s efforts to achieve operational, commercial, financial and organisational excellence. (macauhub)
