Boeing and Angola flag carrier TAAG Linhas Aereas de Angola (Angola Airlines) today finalized an order for three additional 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes.
The order, valued at $895 million at list prices, also includes purchase rights for three additional 777-300ERs. Boeing and TAAG share a strong partnership dating back more than 37 years. We continue to build on that relationship to ensure we share the next 35 years together,” said Van Rex Gallard, vice president of Sales for Africa, Latin America, and Caribbean, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
“TAAG operates an all-Boeing fleet and adding three more 777s to its fleet will help TAAG continue to meet its growing demand with products designed for passenger comfort and airline profitability.”
Aviation growth throughout the African continent continues to outpace the world average as more people fly to and from Africa. Angola’s economy continues to grow at a rapid pace and with that growth comes more demand for air travel. (Source Boeing)
