Luanda – At least 8,000 Angolans and stranded residents have been transported by the Angolan airlines (TAAG) to their place of birth in recent months as part of the flights to return citizens to their areas of origin.

 

The figures presented by the Minister of Transport, Ricardo de D'Abreu, also point to the transportation of 8,000 tons of biosafety material from various countries, especially China.

The government official, who opened the 52nd conference of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA), Annual General Assembly (AGA), which is now run by TAAG, highlighted the performance of the Angolan airline during the pandemic, the split of ENANA and the creation of two new entities.

Angola, according to Ricardo de D'Abreu, is committed to preserving the Civil Aviation ecosystem with all government support.

Ricardo Viegas D'Abreu admitted that this is a particularly challenging year for everyone and in all areas of life, mainly for the aeronautical industry, which is among the most affected sectors.

"We are all aware of the importance that this sector represents in all aspects of life and the role that aviation plays in facilitating trade and the growth of economies is undeniable," he stressed.

According to the Minister, as it navigates collectively, it seeks to emerge from the pandemic more resilient, more organized, and more determined to succeed than before.
