TAAG Angola

Just 3 months after it began service, Luanda based airline and national carrier TAAG Angola Airlines has temporarily suspended flights to Ghana’s capital city Accra.

According to Gh Aviation, the suspension will be reviewed on 1 June, 2023. This is to help the airline evaluate certain key variables concerning the resumption of the route. With sustainability in mind, the airline wants to adjust its commercial plans to ensure the effective use of their fleet.

After three months servicing the Accra route, the passenger throughput was about 433 with a twice weekly flight from Accra-Luanda-Accra on a Boeing 737-700NG. This low number of passengers may be a reason why they have suspended the route. Let’s say if the Boeing 737-700 next generation plane which has a seating capacity of about 149 flew for 24 days in the 3 month period, it means the airline was able to uplift 18 passengers in and out of Accra.
