Angolan Presidential Delegation Tours FAL
29 May saw the President of the Republic of Angola, His Excellency Joao Lourenço, visit our Final Assembly Line. The President was accompanied by a delegation of Angolan Ministers, including the Minister of Transport, Minister of Finance, Minister of State of Economic and Social Development, ambassadors, national Angolan media and representatives from the Prefecture of Occitanie.
The President’s visit to France was part of an initiative aiming at developing business links between Angola and France. The FAL visit allowed representatives from ATR’s senior management to explain to the President and delegation the advantages of the ATR -600 in the regional aviation segment.
With a population of 28 million, the oil and gas-rich country has promising prospects in terms of economic development, including through the expansion of airline services between its capital city, Luanda, and other key cities throughout the country or between such cities. As a proven route opener and with the best economics in its class, our -600 series aircraft is in the best position to address the requirements of the Angolan airline service development.
