Aviation pact to boost flights between Kenya and Angola


According to eTurboNews, the Kenyan government has signed an aviation agreement with Angola, paving the way for increased contact and trade between the two countries.

The Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) will open the way for Angolan airline TAAG to start direct flights between Luanda and Nairobi.

The agreement signed last week is an upgrade on an earlier one signed between the two governments in 2011, which Kenya Airways relied on to launch its flights to Angola. KQ currently operates three direct flights on the Nairobi-Luanda route.
