Maputo-Luanda flight to begin

2009-07-31 17:05

Maputo - Mozambique Airlines will begin flying from Maputo to Luanda in October, part of a 100-million-dollar expansion of the company's services, the company spokesperson said on Friday.

The new link to the Angolan capital will start with weekly flights between the two former Portuguese colonies, the company said.

The airline has also announced the purchase of two Brazilian Embraer 190 jets, the first of which is slated to arrive next week.

Mozambique Airlines, the country's state-run airline and only domestic carrier, has been expanding and modernising its services in anticipation of the 2010 World Cup in neighbouring South Africa.

The airline switched to electronic ticketing in June 2008 and introduced online ticket sales last May.
