TAAG Linhas Aéreas de Angola has sealed a codeshare partnership European carrier, Iberia. The agreement will see TAAG Angola expand its network of destinations in Europe and domestic connections in Spain, connecting Luanda to multiple international destinations via Madrid.
From now on, TAAG customers and passengers will be able to travel on a codeshare basis to London (United Kingdom), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Rome, Milan (Italy), Geneva, Zurich (Switzerland), Brussels (Belgium) and Porto (Portugal). Domestic destinations in Spain are also included, namely Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Gran Canaria, Vigo, Malaga, Bilbao, Valencia and Seville.
The codeshare system offers customers a number of advantages. Passengers now have more fare options to choose from, wider access to IBERIA destinations available in the system, acquisition of a single ticket (for itinerary on both companies) purchased in local currency and with a guarantee of protection on connecting flights. Dealing with issues such as flight booking, check-in and baggage dispatch for trips with a stopover is also more agile and convenient for the passenger, within the codeshare partnership regime.
Under the agreement between the two airlines, the Africa-Europe route (Luanda/ Madrid/Luanda) is operated by TAAG, with the Europe-Europe connections carried out by IBERIA.
TAAG thus remains committed to offering a quality service to the customer, contributing more and more connectivity in the offer of international destinations.
