Ranking - Freight Tonne Kilometer (FTK) – 70.4 miilion freight ton km (FTK) in 20013/ 65.5 FTK 2014 and 46 FTK in 2015; Within Africa Region: 8/54 - World: 69/191 the significant decline in the FTK is mainly caused by reduction of imports due to economic crisis remaining until current year. 

Capacity does not appear to be a major issue in the Angolan air transport system. There are 31 airports in Angola with paved runways. The Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport just outside Luanda is the country’s busiest airport and serves international and domestic airlines. TAAG Angola Airlines is the national flag-carrying airline of Angola and one of the busiest airlines in Africa.

The major challenge facing the aviation sector is safety, which is a Government priority and also a general concern of International regulatory bodies e.g. European Union already backlisted several Angolan airlines including TAAG.

The construction of Luanda’s new international airport, is ongoing and is likely to be completed in 2017/8. And expected to be the largest airport in Africa. It will offer capacity for over 13 million passengers per year, and will have a cargo terminal with an annual capacity of 35 000 tonnes.
