The resumption of international traffic will bring to provinces crossed by the CFB, namely, Benguela, Huambo, Bié and Moxico, development and improvement of conditions.
In addition to the connection to Lobito Port, the CFB also allows the connection with Catumbela International Airport and the future Lobito refinery, as well as crossing areas of urban, regional and cross-border logistics platforms, such as the municipality of Luau.
