Dignitaries celebrate the launch of TAAG Angola Airlines’ direct service between Luanda and Lagos on 16 December.
- TAAG Angola Airlines this week commenced a twice-weekly service between Luanda and Lagos on 16 December. The route, although inaugurated by the B777-200, will be served on Mondays and Fridays with 120-seat B737-700s. No other carrier serves the city-pair. Although the route has low existing P2P demand (around 9,000 passengers per year), the service is timed to connect to/from Johannesburg. Lagos – Johannesburg is a large intra-African market, with 139,000 passengers per year.
