British company Discover the World will ensure the sales and representation of Angolan airline TAAG in France, Germany and Russia under a recently signed partnership agreement, the two companies announced.
William Boulter, the sales director of the Angolan carrier, is quoted in the statement as saying that “we have researched the best company to work together in the European market and we concluded it was Discover the World.”
Boulter also said that the British company will support TAAG in developing business and leisure travel channels from offices in Porto and Lisbon, both in Portugal, as well as work with other European partners to promote Luanda airport as a stopover point for other destinations.
Discover the World CEO Jenny Adams said she was convinced that the company’s teams in France, Germany and Russia will help TAAG get new revenue streams.
In Luanda, the chairman of TAAG’s management committee, Joaquim Teixeira da Cunha, gave asurances that the company had managed to overcome the “unexpected withdrawal” of Emirates from its management without any significant changes to its staff.
Emirates announced unilaterally on 10 July the end of its agreement with the Angolan government for the management of the flagship carrier, which started in 2015, a decision that resulted in the departure of the chairman of the board of directors, Britain’s Peter Hill. (macauhub)
