  • About TAAG Angola Airlines:

    TAAG Angola Airlines is the national flag carrier of Angola. Based in Luanda, the airline has a large domestic network and flights to other parts of Africa and South America. Like Ethiopian Airlines and South African Airways, TAAG has been one of the few profitable sub-Saharan African carriers and one of the few to recently purchase newly built aircraft as opposed to second-hand aircraft. It is 100% state owned by the Angolan government and itself owns 100% of subsidiary Angola Air Charter.

    The airline was originally formed in September 1938 as DTA – Divisão dos Transportes Aéreos, by the Portuguese Colonial Government as a division of the Administration of Railways, Harbours and Air Transport. Operations started on 17 July 1940 using De Havilland Dragon Rapide biplanes.

    In 1940, the airline was renamed DTA – Linhas Aéreas de Angola. In February 1974, the airline was renamed TAAG (Transportes Aéreos Angolanos) – Linhas Aéreas de Angola.

    In 1975 after independence from Portugal the airline was named Angola's national flag carrier. During the 1970s the airline acquired several Ilyushin Il-62 aircraft along with Boeing 707 long-haul jets and Boeing 737s arriving in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Fokker F-27s were introduced on domestic routes at this time.

    The Angolan government formed TAAG Air Angola for domestic operations. The airline relied on smaller jets, such as the Boeing 727 and Boeing 737s, for these local flights. It also used the larger, but older, Boeing 707s, as well as two examples of the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar in the 1990s.

    TAAG began flights to six other African countries, as well as to Lisbon, Paris, Rome and Moscow.

    TAAG bought a Boeing 747 with these longhaul routes in mind. Flights to Havana, via Sal Island, were operated for many years to transport Cuban advisors and other personnel, often on a fortnightly schedule. When granted rights to fly to Cuba, TAAG gained the distinction of being the only African airline to fly to Jose Marti International Airport in Havana.

    In 2005, it was announced that TAAG was to order three Boeing 777-200ERs and four Boeing 737-700s. It was originally intended that these aircraft replace TAAG's ageing fleet of Boeing 747-300s and Boeing 737-200s, however, these new aircraft ended up simply adding to TAAG's fleet. After delivery in November 2006, TAAG immediately placed its first two 777s on the Luanda-Lisbon, Luanda-Johannesburg, and Luanda-Paris routes. Because the 777s are unable to fly from Luanda to Brazil due to ETOPS restrictions, TAAG was forced to continue using their Boeing 747-300s on their Brazilian routes.

    On 28 June 2007, it was announced that the EU is banning TAAG from flying within the EU over safety concerns, effective 4 July. This left TAAG with two 777's sitting in Luanda unable to fly to Europe. Therefore, it was decided that TAAG will fly to Dubai and Beijing. To continue operating flights to Europe, TAAG wet-leased a Boeing 747-400 from South African Airways. This aircraft was flown with a South African flight crew and a mixture of TAAG and South African cabin crew.

    In August 2008, TAAG took delivery of its third 777, D2-TEF.

    In November 2008, the TAAG board was ousted and a new board was elected in an effort to get the airline off the EU blacklist.

    On 29 May 2009, it was annouced that TAAG had passed IATA inspections.

    On 3 July 2009, it was annouced TAAG will be allowed to gradually resume flights to Europe, starting with Portugal only. Only TAAG's three Boeing 777-2M2ERs are allowed into Lisbon.

    On 1 August 2009, TAAG's first flight departed from Luanda to Lisbon after nearly 2 years of being banned from EU airspace. TAAG then returned their Boeing 747-400 back to South African Airways and is now flying to Lisbon ten times a week with their own aircraft. (Source: Wikipedia - 2009)
