SonAir delivers two Boeing 737 to TAAG

SonAir - which belongs to Sonangol - made official this Thursday the delivery of two Boeing 737-700 aircraft to TAAG. The handover, formalised by Ruben Costa, Chairman of the Executive Committee of SonAir, was part of the ongoing restructuring process at Sonangol.

"We are pleased to deliver the aircraft to TAAG to continue serving our country," said Ruben Costa, quoted by Angop.

Rui Carreira, President of TAAG's Executive Committee, considered that these two aircraft will help strengthen TAAG's fleet and assured that "TAAG will never abandon its mission to serve the public interest".

The Chairman of TAAG's Executive Committee also took the opportunity to mention that the flagship company will continue the journey so far, with a view to conquer the regional and African market.

Jorge Vinhas, Sonangol administrator, congratulated both companies on the success of the negotiations and said that SonAir will start flying in helicopters. Jorge Vinhas explained that SonAir carried out flights in airplanes, but with the restructuring process it will do so in helicopters, thus helping the oil industry with flights offshore.

The official documents were signed by Sonangol's director, representing the oil company's board of directors and members of the SonAir and TAAG executive committees.
