Angola air transport in downturn

Air transport in Angola in 2016 recorded a 28 percent decreases in aircraft movements, 11 percent in passenger numbers, 19 percent in cargo carried and 13 percent in postal services, said the chairman of airport management company ENANA.

Cited by the Angolan press, Ceita said that the economic and financial crisis in Angola had a direct impact on air transport and restricted ENANA’s business, leading to a significant drop in turnover in 2016.

Despite a drop in the number of aircraft flying to Luanda, as well as passengers and cargo, Ceita said ENANA had contributed to the economic diversification process, creating and improving mechanisms that facilitate the movement of people and goods in Angolan airports.
