The sixth and last Dash8-400 type aircraft, ordered from the Canadian company 'De Havilland of Canada Limited', arrived in the country this Saturday. Received at 4 de Fevereiro International Airport, this aircraft will strengthen TAAG's fleet, thus increasing its offer and availability on domestic and regional connections.


"TAAG Linhas Aéreas de Angola has just reinforced its fleet with the receipt of another Dash8-400 model aircraft, increasing the offer and availability in domestic and regional connections", revealed the flag airline, in a statement to which VerAngola had access.

According to the note, the plane was christened "Dande", and the mission to carry out the arrival flight on national soil was the responsibility of Commander Olívio Patrício and Pilot Paulo Correia.

José Coelho, director of operations at TAAG, speaking at the event, considered that this plane will make it possible to strengthen travel on the routes with the most demand.

Cited by Angop, he clarified that, in an initial phase, they will not open new routes, but will "increase the number of domestic and regional frequencies".

"With this device, we will not open new routes, in a first phase, but we will, yes, be able to increase the number of domestic and regional frequencies, in order to satisfy the demand of our customers", he informed.

This model belongs to the turbo-propeller class and is capable of carrying 74 passengers (64 in economy and 10 in business).

According to the TAAG note, these models are modern, fast and comfortable aircraft, standing out as benefits for passengers.

The company also mentions that this aircraft is recognized for "its high reliability and reduced operating cost compared to other B737 models, being extremely efficient for domestic routes and also suitable for medium-haul international routes such as Windhoek (Namibia), Maputo (Mozambique ) or Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo)".

TAAG also considers that the diversification of its fleet with these models, "will bring greater profitability and cost savings" to its operation.

The company's fleet currently comprises 21 aircraft: six Dash8-400 type aircraft, seven Boeing 737-700 type aircraft, three Boeing 777-200 aircraft and five 777-300 type aircraft.
