Luanda Airport

Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport is the main airport in Angola and was named after the beginning of the struggle against Portuguese colonialism on 4th February 1961, Quatro de Fevereiro. Its situated two miles outside Luanda, the capital city of Angola. Luanda airport serves as both a civilian and military airport and is operated by the Military of Angola. Current passenger numbers are not known with the last figures being from 2004 when the airport served some three quarters of a million passengers. Numerous international airlines land at the airport which is home to TAAG Angola Airlines.

Passengers report that it is useful to have some spare $$$ to help 'facilitate' the checking in and out process and advise that its prudent to take food and water with you as the in-airport facilities are rarely operational. The airport has been the centre of a mystery dating back to 25th May 2003 when a Boeing 727 formerly owned by American Airlines was stolen from the airport having been parked there for a year. It says something for airport security that such an airplane can be stolen and never recovered!
