Angola Airlines To Resume Havana Flights

HAVANA, Aug. 19th  TAAG Angola Airlines has announced its plans to resume flights to Havana. The national carrier will resume services to the Cuban capital in November, around the same time that it adds a third weekly rotation to Madrid.

Back in Cuba

In recent years, countless long-haul air routes have been forced into suspension by the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. Some have resumed quicker than others, and some may not return at all.

However, TAAG Angola Airlines‘ hub at Luanda’s Quatro de Fevereiro Airport (LAD) will soon see multiple intercontinental boosts relating to both Central America and Europe.

One of these concerns the Angolan flag carrier’s resumption of services on its route to José Martí International Airport (HAV) in Havana, Cuba. These flights will resume on November 8th, initially operating once every two weeks.

In December and January, the frequency will increase to weekly, before dropping to bi-weekly in February. Regarding the reopening of the route, TAAG Angola Airlines stated:

“The conditions are now ready to reconnect two countries sharing a strong bond. Passenger exchange is relevant, namely the corporate segment (Cuban doctors and teachers) entering Luanda, and, on the other hand, travels related to tourism, education, and health care going to Cuba.”
