Cabo Verde Airlines, the national airline of Cape Verde, has announced a strategic partnership with TAAG Angola Airlines, the national airline of Angola.
The two airlines will enter into a codeshare agreement of flights operated by TAAG between Luanda and Sal.
Cabo Verde Airlines and TAAG Angola Airlines will sign a codeshare agreement for flights between Luanda and Sal. The codeshare agreement will be signed officially on April 26, 2019, the date of the inaugural flight between the two cities operated by TAAG-Angola Airlines.
This service is a partnership where an airline will carry passengers from another airline through shared code on a particular flight; in this case, passengers with tickets for a Cabo Verde Airlines flight between Luanda and Sal will be carried on a TAAG aircraft.
In this partnership, Cabo Verde Airlines will act as marketing carrier, meaning it will sell tickets with its own code even in flights operated by TAAG, which in this partnership will be the operating carrier.
