The order of 6 Q400 in Angola suspended

To share this publication :

Several African media reports that the new Angolan Minister of Transport, Ricardo Daniel Sandão Queirós Viegas de Abre, has dissolved the technical commission responsible for organizing the launch of the new airline Angola Expresso.


It seems that at the time of its creation, the public-private consortium “Connection Air Express” had not been respecting certain technicalities and therefore its existence was illegal at the time of the signing of the contract for the purchase of 6 Q400.


The agreement reached with Bombardier last May stipulated that Bombardier was to train 120 Angolans as follows: 55 pilots, 25 flight attendants and 40 mechanics. The Angolan government has still not specified when and how it intends to revive a new airline, but this should be announced in the coming months.
