Event

Pilots at the Angolan national carrier TAAG (Angolan Air Transport) are set to go on strike from Thursday, June 15, through June 25 to demand better wages and working conditions. Flight delays and cancelations are possible throughout the airline's network during this 11-day period.

Context

This movement follows months of unsuccessful attempts to reach a consensus between pilots and airline management. The most recent round of talks began in March concerning issues such as salaries, health insurance, flight licenses, and workplace accidents. TAAG management and the pilot union remain open to dialogue.​

Advice

Passengers planning to fly on affected days should confirm their flight status and contact the airline for further details. ​
