Qatar Airways has unveiled plans to launch flights to Luanda, starting 29 March 2020.

The service, which Qatar Airways will operate up to five-times weekly to the capital and largest city of Angola, will be operated by Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.

Perched on the Atlantic coastline on the south west coast of Africa, Luanda - the third most populous Portuguese-speaking city in the world - offers pristine beaches, sweeping ocean vistas and insight into a rich heritage. This up-and-coming destination is becoming increasingly popular with travellers looking to combine natural beauty, history and culture with an urban experience.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said, “The new route to the coastal city of Luanda not only further solidifies the links between the State of Qatar and Angola, but will enable us to provide a seamless journey to and from this fascinating country and one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Qatar Airways is committed to growing our presence in Africa and adding to the 24 destinations in 17 countries we already offer.”

The national carrier for the State of Qatar has recently launched an array of new destinations, including Rabat, Morocco; Izmir, Turkey; Malta; Davao, Philippines; Lisbon, Portugal; and Mogadishu, Somalia. The airline will add Langkawi, Malaysia, and Gaborone, Botswana, to its extensive route network in October 2019.
