Today the US and Angola signed an Air Transport Agreement that would allow new direct commerical flights between the two countries. US Secretary of State William Burns said ” Angola is one of only three countries in Africa with whom the United States is launching strategic partnership dialogues, and that reflects the range and importance of the agenda between our two countries.”
Past flights between the US and Angola have had to make stops in either South Africa or Europe before continuing onto their final destination.
American air carrier, Delta, see’s strong potential in Angola due to the thousands of Americans working over there in the oil sectors as well as the thousands of humanitarian workers that are currently in the country.
During Burns’ two day trip to Angola, he is expected to meet with Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos as well as the Prime Minister Assuncao dos Anjos as well as a trip to the US-Angola chamber of commerce.
