TAAG opens investigation into incident with plane bound for Lisbon that crashed into truck

The flag carrier TAAG has asked for an investigation to be opened after an incident, on Wednesday, involving a Hifly plane that would make the Luanda-Lisbon-Luanda connection, which crashed into a Sonangol truck.


According to a statement from TAAG, the plane operated by Hifly was scheduled to leave at 11:20 pm, but left late due to the need to replace the equipment after a collision between the Sonangol truck and the Airbus A330, during the aircraft's refueling maneuvers.

The carrier states that the passengers continued their journey on a Boeing 777, whose flight was scheduled for November 3, "with no additional impact on the global flight schedule".

TAAG emphasizes that it is not involved in what happened and was affected by this situation, having requested the opening of an investigation to investigate this incident that only caused material damage to the plane.

The incident was reported to the competent authorities, namely the SGA (Sociedade Gestora de Aeroportos) and ANAC (National Civil Aviation Agency), "with all stakeholders working together to prevent similar situations from happening again in the future", concludes the communiqué.
