TAAG airline connects Angola to Cabo Verde via São Tomé and Príncipe

Angolan airline TAAG has resumed flights between Angola and Cabo Verde, with the first flight to be scheduled for 21 April, with a stopover in São Tomé and Príncipe, the delegation of the Angolan company in São Tomé said in a statement.

The statement, quoted by Portuguese news agency Lusa, said that between 26 April and 26 October, as part of the Summer Programme, the flight between Luanda and Sal Island in Cabo Verde will be offered twice a week.

The Angolan Transport Minister, Ricardo Viegas d’Abreu, announced in late March that Angolan airline TAAG would re-connect Angola to Cabo Verde, via Sal Island, starting in the third week of April.

The air link between Angola and Cabo Verde was suspended in 2016, “to rationalise costs,” according to statements made by the TAAG chief executive, Rui Carreira, in March.

Carreira also said that the connection to Sal will be made with a stopover on the Luanda-Havana route, with two weekly flights. (Macauhub)
