About the Airport

Luanda International Airport is situated 5 km from the cemtre of the Angolan capital city of Luanda. It is the Republic of Angola's main airport linking the rest of the world to the rest of Angola via an extensive network of provincial airports.

The Portuguese name "Quatro de Fevereiro" refers to the date that an armed struggle began against colonial rule that led to the country's independence.

Due to increased economic growth in the country, largely fuelled by oil reserves, a new airport is currently under construction that will replace it. The estimated completion date has been delayed and not yet finalised. It is located approximately 40 km to the east of Luanda in e Bengo province and improved transport links are planned.
