It's 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. It is soon to be replaced by the new Angola International Airport, which lies approximately 30 km to the east of Luanda.

Numerous international airlines land at the airport which is home to TAAG Angola Airlines.

Luanda Airport Inside

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!
