ENANA source told Angop that the company is working to overcome the damage that has already caused incalculable damage to the companies and passengers involved in the incident that caused the change in the schedule of flights of different international companies and TAAG between at 10:00 a.m. and at 3:00 p.m. on March 4th.
The source reconfirmed that the incident caused the delay of eight regional and one international flight, and was caused by the fault, associated to the lack of energy that was registered in Luanda.
Two flights to South Africa (TAAG and SAA), the same number for Windhoek, one for Maputo, Harare and Addis Ababa, for airlines from those countries, and a TAAG flight to Lisbon.
With the power outage at around 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, the alternative system for the airport started operating immediately, but at 10:00 am the generators presented technical problems that affected the different operating systems and were only reestablished at 3:00 p.m., by ENDE.
The Civil Aviation Act establishes a set of rights that guarantee the equitable treatment of passengers. Among the duties, regarding flight delays, it says that "except for reasons of force majeure, the carrier is liable for damages caused as a result of the delay".
