Brussels Airlines increases flight frequency to Luanda, Angola

Starting 26 January Brussels Airlines will offer an additional flight frequency between Brussels Airport and the airport of Luanda in Angola. This third weekly flight is made possible thanks to an aviation agreement between Belgium and Angola.

Thanks to the presence of petroleum resources and minerals, Angola is one of the fastest growing countries in the world. Brussels Airlines currently operates two flights per week between Belgium and the capital of Angola, but thanks to a new agreement between the Belgian and the Angolan aviation authorities, the airline will operate a third weekly flight starting 26 January. From then on, the European capital be directly connected to the Quatro de Fevereiro airport on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday

TAAG, the Angolan national airline collaborates with the Belgian airline and also commercializes the Brussels Airlines flights, which are operated with Airbus A330 aircraft. Thanks to the convenient schedule, the flight from Angola connects smoothly with the Brussels Airlines network, giving passengers the opportunity to transfer to flights to their European destinations and New York and Washington D.C.

 

“We are pleased that we can increase our flight offer to Angola”, says Brussels Airlines CEO Bernard Gustin. ‘Two weeks ago Brussels Airlines supported an important Belgian economic mission to Angola. We are convinced that this third frequency will benefit the commercial relations between Belgium and Angola.”
