The Boeing Co. and TAAG Linhas Aereas de Angola, or Angola Airlines, have finalized an order for three 777-300 Extended Range jets, the companies said Monday.
The order is valued at $895 million at list prices, though airlines typically negotiate discounts. TAAG, which is based out of TAAG Angola Airlines was founded in 1938 and is based out of Angola’s capital of Luanda, also negotiated purchase rights for three additional 777s in the deal.
“TAAG operates an all-Boeing fleet and adding three more 777s to its fleet will help TAAG continue to meet its growing demand with products designed for passenger comfort and airline profitability,” Boeing’s Van Rex Gallard, vice president of sales for Africa, Latin America, and Caribbean, said in a statement.
Also on Monday, Boeing said that it has delivered a second 747-8 freighter to AirBridgeCargo Airlines. ABC has ordered five of Boeing’s updated 747-8 cargo planes.
“We have been very pleased with the performance of our first 747-8 Freighter, and we are eager to have the second join our fleet,” Tatyana Arslanova, AirBridgeCargo’s executive president, said in a statement.
