TAAG Angola launches non-stop flights from Luanda to China’s capital Beijing
TAAG Angola relaunched services to China’s capital Beijing (PEK) on 30 August. The airline operates the 11,775-kilometre route from Luanda (LAD) non-stop once a week with 255-seat 777-200ER aircraft. Although no other airline operates the ultra-long route non-stop, Hainan Airlines also serves the airport pair with a twice-weekly service stopping in Dubai. Notably, there are considerable Chinese economic ties with Angola, which is China’s largest trading partner in Africa.
