Transport: operators foresee growth in demand in the days before New Year's Eve

Although the Christmas hustle has already calmed down, air and land transport companies anticipate that confusion will settle in the days before New Year's Eve, predicting that demand will grow considerably at the end of this week.


According to Macon's commercial coordinator, Armando Macedo, the high movement recorded on the 23rd and 24th of December has calmed down, but demand is expected to grow again this Thursday and Friday, days before New Year's Eve.

"We had a significant reduction in that movement that occurred on the 23rd and 24th, we are taking advantage of the moment to prepare and attend the 29th and 30th", he said, in statements to Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA).

The official also took the opportunity to mention that they are going to inaugurate a new passenger terminal in Benguela: "We are now inaugurating the new terminal in Benguela province to better serve our customers, in a few days they will notice the new investment available".

As noted by RNA, on Monday, December 26, the domestic terminal at 4 de Fevereiro Airport registered a serene scenario, with passengers giving a positive rating to the services. This was the case of Sávio Capita, who said that the services were fast, considering that most people had already boarded, which justifies this normality.

"Today is really fast, but the previous days have been worse. I think that most people have already embarked, that's the reason for this normality", he indicated, in statements to RNA.

The same view was shared by another passenger who, in statements to RNA, said that "so far" she was "without constraints".

The same was highlighted by Alfeu Vinevala's cousin, Alfeu Tchivinda, who said he had not registered "any anomaly". "I work here in Luanda, I'm going on a duty mission to Namibe for a few days, I haven't registered any anomalies, so far everything is fine", he said, quoted by RNA.

The same scenario was also seen at Macon, whose passengers say everything is working normally. This was the case of Noé António, who said that his "residence is in Moxico", but that he spent the 25th in Luanda "with his family", returning on Monday, where "they were treated very well".

Another passenger also gave a good score for the service: "We are being very well attended", she said, quoted by RNA.

Despite the calm scenario, the predictions of companies in the sector point to a return of agitation a few days before Saturday, December 31st, New Year's Day.
