Cabo Verde Airlines and TAAG-Angola Airlines sign codeshare agreement

Cabo Verde Airlines has signed a strategic partnership with TAAG Angola Airlines to enter into a codeshare agreement of flights operated by TAAG between Luanda and Sal.

The agreement will be signed officially on 26 April, the date of the inaugural flight between the two cities operated by TAAG.

This service is a partnership where an airline will carry passengers from another airline through shared code on a particular flight. Passengers with tickets for a Cabo Verde Airlines flight between Luanda and Sal will be carried on a TAAG aircraft.

Cabo Verde Airlines will act as marketing carrier, meaning it will sell tickets with its own code even in flights operated by TAAG, which in this partnership will be the operating carrier.

The flights will be operated twice-weekly by a Boeing 737-700 with 120 seats. Cabo Verde Airlines will operate flights between the two cities using its own aircraft.
