There are certain things that aircraft operators need to keep in mind when planning for their flight to Angola.
• Initial arrivals and final departure from Nigeria must be from an international airport. We would suggest Cabinda International (FNCA/CAB), Luanda/4 De Fevereiro (FNLU/LAD), or Lubango/Mukanka (FNUB/SDD)
• All the aircrafts flying in Luanda/4 De Fevereiro (FNLU/LAD) FIR must be equipped with HF.
• It is mandatory to have proper identification documents all the time during your trip, failure to do so will result in a fine of 100 $.
• Due to currency restrictions, you cannot bring or take more than USD 5,000 without a clearance from the central bank.
• As Angola is located in the yellow fever endemic area, besides widespread malaria, it’s recommended to take a vaccination for personal safety first.
Our supervisory agents are available 24/7 to answer all queries you have regarding flight planning and flight management for your next flight to Angola.
The only jet fuel supplier and into-plane agent in Angola is the government-owned and operated- Sonangol. Sonangol does not accept fuel cards or credit cards, and payment for the fuel is preferred to be done through a reseller who has a prior contract with them.
JET A1 fuel is available in Angola with no shortage recently experienced, but AVGAS is scarcely available.
In April 2015, under an agreement with Sonangol, Best Fly started operating its own dedicated fuel bowser for refueling executive aircraft at its FBO in FNLU. This has ensured faster turn-around time, as into-plane fueling by the FBO ensures better refueling process.

Every aircraft operator needs to obtain several flight permits before any flight (overflight permits and a landing permit). Overflight permits are necessary to enter, pass, and exit each country across your flight route. While landing permits are permissions to land in a particular airport at the destination country. The process of obtaining overflight and landing permits is complicated. Here comes iJET effective role in facilitating the process and securing flight permits on short notice due to its wide network of relations with the civil aviation authorities in almost every country around the world. iJET also helps aircraft operators to choose the flight route that imposes the minimum overflight fees, as most countries charge fees for processing overflight permits. Those fees are generally non-refundable. Overflight permit fees and landing permit fees are different from one country/airport to another. The required documents for applying to both overflight and landing permits also differ from one country to another. But generally, an aircraft operator is required to provide: the flight number, schedule and purpose of the flight, and aircraft airworthiness certificate, aircraft operator certificate, certificate of registration, insurance certificate, noise certificate, airworthiness review certificate.
iJET provides full ground handling and airport services arrangements, including obtaining overflight and landing permit, traffic rights permission, supervision, station and revenue management, fueling and catering provision security services, and ticketing services.
