Most visitors to Angola arrive by air, with the only safe land border (at time of writing) being with Namibia and involving a long journey by car. A handful of airlines fly to Angola (all to Luanda) including:
- Star Alliance - Lufthansa (from Frankfurt), South African (from Johannesburg), TAP (from Lisbon)
- Oneworld - British Airways (from London LHR)
- Sky Team - Aeroflot (from Moscow SVO) , Air France (from Paris CDG)
- Other selected - TAAG Angola Airlines (from Dubai, Lisbon, Paris CDG, Rio, and various African cities)
TIP Fares to Angola are very high - hopefully this will change as more airlines begin flying there. Book as far ahead as possible. Try to get on an award.
TIP On Star Alliance and Sky Team round the world fares, Angola will use a considerable portion of the mileage allowance. On Oneworld Angola is not possible to include in an around the world ticket (without an African surface segment) due to back-tracking rules, and with some exceptions will require entry or exit to the continent through flights between Johannesburg and Hong Kong or Johannesburg and Sydney.
