Angola: TAAG to launch flights between Luanda <> Madrid!

The state-owned flag carrier of Angola, TAAG Angola Airlines, and the flag carrier airline of Spain, Iberia, have signed a codeshare and interline agreement for the new Luanda <> Madrid route and beyond. Effective 27 June 2022, TAAG will operate two weekly flights between Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport (LAD) in Luanda and Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (MAD) in Madrid. The new route will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER with a capacity of 293 seats.
The new codeshare and interline agreement allows customers of TAAG Angola Airlines and Iberia to benefit from the international network of both carriers. Iberia operates flights to 134 destinations in 43 countries; for TAAG, Madrid becomes the 10th international destination from the Luanda hub, in addition to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Windhoek, Maputo, Kinshasa, Lagos, Lisbon, São Paulo and São Tomé. 

btw - Iberia previously operated the Madrid <> Luanda route between 2011 and 2016 but suspended it due to low passenger loads.
