TAAG Angola Airline has appointed AirlinePros Brazil as their General Sales Agent (GSA). AirlinePros Brazil will now be responsible for TAAG’s sales, promotions, marketing, and customer service activities throughout the Latin American country. AirlinePros has been TAAG’s valued sales partner in North America for more than a decade and both entities are now extending this successful partnership to Brazil.
Brazil is an important market for TAAG business-wise. The airline flies from Sao Paulo (GRU) to Luanda (LAD) three times a week and has excellent onward connections to several destinations throughout Africa: a double-daily service to Lisbon, Portugal and from June 27th onwards two flights a week from Luanda to Madrid. Overall, there is a great potential supporting traffic demand with key transatlantic connections from Brazil to Africa and Europe via the Luanda gateway. “The local expertise of AirlinePros Brazil will help us further increase our sales activities and brand awareness in one of our most important markets,” said Lisa Mota-Pinto McNally, CCO, TAAG Angola Airlines. “We are looking forward to work with their team.” Historically there has been a huge traffic between Angola and Brazil for business, leisure, and VFR traffic and this is slated to continue as travel goes on an upsurge. As we move from the pandemic to endemic mode, air traffic between the two countries is more than likely to go up.
“My professional relationship with TAAG Angola began in the 90s and ever since I have loved the indomitable spirit of the Angolans and TAAG which has carried it through many vagaries of the aviation industry,” said Achma Foster, CEO, AirlinePros. “It is exciting to extend our existing relationship in North America to Brazil where our Sao Paulo office with Altamiro Medici and Rebecca Meadows and team is looking forward to work with them as travel and tourism grows in momentum.”
TAAG Angola Airlines was founded in 1938 and is based in Luanda, Angola’s capital city. For more than 80 years TAAG has connected Angolans with its key domestic and international markets. TAAG is the leading airline in the country, recognized worldwide for its strong corporate high yield market, having grown its current network to 14 domestic and 12 international destinations. It’s fleet allows, in addition to passenger transport, air cargo services which have become essential for Angola’s growth and development.
