Reasons to fly to Angola

If deserts and plateaus are what you’re looking for, board a flight to Angola and head to the African country located along the South Atlantic. Angola is more than three times the size of California, but travelers booking Angola flights and accommodations won’t find any similarities here. Bordered by the Republic of Congo, Zambia and Namibia, Angola is mostly desert with forests sprinkled throughout the northwest region. 

What keeps travelers booking cheap flights to Angola? The vast supply of the country’s oil. Angola is the second-largest oil producer in sub-Saharan Africa bringing in billions of dollars a year from around the world. It's sometimes shocking for visitors on Angola flights, however, when they find some of the poorest people in Africa living in Angola. More than $4 billion in oil receipts has gone missing from the country’s treasury, according to the International Monetary Fund. Still, many people continue booking flights to Angola on peace-seeking efforts and try to reestablish the country’s economy. 

Since Angola is continually engaged in internal civil wars, it’s a good idea for travelers taking Angola flights to always carry identity papers and passports.
