The announcement was made this Wednesday by António Manuel Cabral, chairman of the Board of Directors (PCA) of the CFB.
Until now, according to Angop, the Cuito/Luena route and vice versa had four frequencies per week, while the Luena/Luau route had three trips, and with the announced reinforcement, the number of weekly trips on these routes will rise to six.
The company's CEO, quoted by Angop, admitted that this route (Cuito/Luena/Luau) presents "great pressure", since it is used by citizens of Moxico, Lunda Sul and Lunda Norte.
In addition, the official also informed that they are repairing carriages that will start to circulate shortly, mainly in the direction of Lobito/Huambo, writes Angop.
Cited by Angop, the PCA also advanced that a new passenger terminal will be built in Luena, aiming to better organize passengers when boarding and disembarking.
António Manuel Cabral also took the opportunity to report that 350,000 tonnes of various products are transported by the company each year between Lobito and Luau, with emphasis on fuel, construction materials, copper, manganese and food products.
He also mentioned tickets, clarifying that they are designing rules to protect tickets with the aim of stopping fraud.
