Useful Information Before Operating to Angola

The primary international airport for Angola is Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport. It is situated in Luanda's southernmost region. The airport operates on a 24-hour per-day schedule. The fourth of February, or "Quatro de Fevereiro," is a significant national holiday in Angola. Additionally, International Flight Planning Solutions and Angola will work together to divide up all the duties.

If you are a crew member in the aviation industry planning to travel to Angola, it is important to be aware of the visa procedures. All crew members are required to obtain a crew visa before arrival in Angola. The process can take up to 15 days to complete, so it is recommended that you apply well in advance of your planned arrival date. In addition to the standard visa application requirements, crew members must also provide a letter from their employer stating the purpose of their trip and the dates of their stay in Angola. It is also important to note that crew members are only allowed to stay in Angola for a maximum of 72 hours, and any extension of this stay requires a separate visa application. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines or other penalties, so it is important to ensure that all requirements are met before traveling to Angola.

The South African oil-rich Republic of Angola is surrounded by Namibia and Congo on the Atlantic Ocean. Angola ranks 140th in terms of economic freedom in the 2021 index with a score of 54.2. Despite having a wealth of natural resources, China's per-capita output is among the lowest in the world. 85% of the population relies primarily on subsistence agriculture for their livelihood. The economy depends heavily on oil production and related sectors, which account for around 45% of GDP and 90% of exports. Massive mineral and oil reserves make Angola one of the world's economies with the greatest growth rates, particularly since the end of the civil war. The majority of the nation's wealth is concentrated in a disproportionately tiny segment of the population, and economic growth is therefore quite uneven.
