“The importance of boosting intra-regional cooperation in Africa and improving intra-African connectivity cannot be overemphasised. As such, TAAG is committed to playing a significant role in achieving these objectives. With direct connections to nine cities in Africa, two in the Americas, and two in Europe, TAAG is the interlink enabler for North-South and South-South connectivity. We strongly believe that Luanda can be a central hub in Austral/Africa, offering strong opportunities for East-West (e.g., Asia-Africa-Americas) and North-South (Europe-Africa) connectivity,” says Eduardo Fairen, CEO TAAG.
Angola’s long transatlantic coastline and TAAG´s relevant connections highlight the country´s hyper-competitive geographic advantage. With the continent’s attractive potential for business development, TAAG is well-positioned to be the airline of choice for bridging connections to and from Africa.
WTM Africa is expected to be a crucial platform for leaders in the travel and tourism industry to share insights, best practices, and form partnerships to boost Africa’s tourism sector. TAAG representative at the event will be Rui Carreira, as a Board Member while this a significant opportunity for attendees to hear from a leading aviation expert on the importance of intra-regional cooperation in Africa.
