Angola’s flagship airline invests to meet demand in Portugal

4 July 2014

Angolan flagship airline Linhas Aéreas de Angola (Taag) plans to open a store in the centre of the city of Porto, northern Portugal to meet increased demand for its services in that part of the country, the company announced.

The new store is due to open to the public in September and requires investment – including acquisition, building work, furniture and equipment – of around 2 million euros.

Taag offers seven flights a week from Luanda to Lisbon and two flights per week from Luanda to Porto, a route it offers exclusively, with three Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft, the third of which was delivered in Luanda last week.

Taag’s Portuguese counterpart, TAP – Air Portugal, offers 10 flights per week between Luanda and Lisbon on Airbus aircraft. (macauhub/AO/PT)
