This follows its fleet maintenance and recovery plan and in order to better respond to market needs and its business strategy.

The route, which has two flights a day, will be operated by two Boeing 777- 300ER.

This service was previously carried out using an aircraft from the HiFly airline, on a wet lease basis, due to the maintenance of TAAG's international fleet, namely the Boeing 777-300ER model.

‘We would like to thank HiFly for their collaboration during the term of this agreement, which has ensured the reinforcement of our operation and the smooth running of a priority route for TAAG. The Luanda-Lisbon service plays an important role at various levels, from economic dynamisation to social cohesion, and this solution represented a commitment, together with HiFly, to guarantee a reliable and efficient service for our passengers,’ said Nelson de Oliveira, TAAG CEO.
