According to eTurboNews, Angola’s national carrier Linhas Aereas de Angola (Taag) plans to increase its direct flights between Harare (Zimbabwe) and Luanda (Angola), off the back of increased business to Zimbabwe.
Taag currently flies the route once a week and is looking to up the number to three or more. This comes as Zimbabwe’s distressed national airline Air Zimbabwe suspended flights to Angola, leaving only Taag to service the route.
In August last year, Malawi Airline Limited (Mal) announced plans to resume direct flights between Harare and Lilongwe, Malawi. After Mal suspended the flights in 2004 due to operational problems, travellers were forced to connect through Johannesburg (South Africa), Lusaka (Zambia), and Nairobi (Kenya).
