Flights between Luanda and Lusaka may resume in April

Albino Malungo, Angolan ambassador to Zambia, informed that the air connection between Luanda and Lusaka (Zambian capital) could be resumed next month. According to the diplomat, “a little detail is missing” for companies from both countries to start flights.

"There's a little detail missing, I think it's a small memorandum that must be signed, so that companies from both countries start flying to Luanda and Lusaka. I think that long before the end of April, we will have our TAAG here in Lusaka, which is essential", said Albino Malungo, adding that he received guarantees from the Transport Ministers of Zambia and Angola regarding the operationalization of the aforementioned service between both countries.

The ambassador considered that the return of TAAG to the capital of Zambia - where the national airline suspended flights several years ago due to, among other reasons, an insufficient amount of traffic that ended up not justifying its presence in that country – comes at a good time in bilateral relations between Angola and Zambia, which have grown considerably in recent years, especially with the emergence of the Lobito Corridor, writes Jornal de Angola.

The diplomat also spoke about the Lobito Corridor, noting that there is high expectation on the part of Zambia's business community regarding this project. "The project represents great hope for the development of this country", he pointed out, adding that Zambia has a strong presence in mining and agricultural production, thus seeing this corridor as the way to export these goods.

Within the scope of the good relations that currently exist between Angola and Zambia, the diplomat took the opportunity to make an appeal to Angolan businesspeople to invest in Zambia, taking into account the various opportunities that exist, especially in the areas of education and agriculture.

Thus, he launched the challenge: "I challenge those school owners to come here, especially to teach the Portuguese language, whose interest in the language grows every day", he said, quoted by Jornal de Angola.

The ambassador made these statements last Saturday, in Lusaka, as part of the Extraordinary Summit of the SADC Double Troika, where the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, participated.
