Effective 25th June 2006 - LAM Linhas Aereas de Moçambique- The National Carrier of Mozambique and one of the oldest existing Airlines in Africa is now set to introduce bi-weekly Boeing 737 flights on its own metals between Maputo and Nairobi via Pemba.

Flights will be operated on WED and SUN.

LAM has also been codesharing on Kenya Airways bi-weekly flights between Maputo and Nairobi via Harare which were introduced last october (2005).

Hence now we find 4 weekly flights between Maputo and Nairobi, All the four flights being codeshare flights - 2X operated by TM and 2X operated by KQ.

I wish KQ and TM all the best.

A little more about LAM and Mozambique....

LAM - currently serves a dozen of domestic destinations within Mozambique and its regional network extends to Johannesburg (South Africa), Durban (South Africa), Harare (Zimbabwe), Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) and now Nairobi (Kenya). It also codeshares on flights to Lisbon (I am not sure about now, as to what has happened!)

Mozambique the beautiful country is trying its bests and is on a fast track to make its name as one of the best tourism places in the World. It has alot to offer including game parks and beaches.

LAM's also plans to open up and link new routes with its Northern tourism heaven of Pemba. In 2002 they started flights between Pemba and Dar es Salaam, and then JNB and Pemba. Now they are to link NBO and POL.

I wish them all the best.

In Mozambique there are quite some beautiful resorts many owned by europeans including-

No TNR or MRU flights yet?
How about LAD? Is there something wrong going on between Mozambique and Angola. One could expect some kind of direct airtraffic between the former portuguese colonies, but maybe SA takes care of all of it via JNB.
I think It'll be too risky for them to try GIG or GRU, since SA offers daily MPM-GRU-MPM via JNB. Maybe if they were to look East: BKK, SIN, PER?

I don't work for COPA Airlines!

Add Bazaruto to that list of beautiful resorts to visit. I can't wait to visit again  bigthumbsup 

I thought TAP would introduce flights into Maputo? Any chance of this any time soon? Pestana (Portuguese hotel chain) owns some hotels in Mozambique and would certainly be able to help fill one or two A330's a week.

I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning.

TAP does have flights into Maputo, 4 weekly with the A340-300.

There is virtually no traffic between LAD & MPM even though both are Portuguese colonies- hence, no route.

didn't LAM have a 747 a few years ago? I wasn't sure if it was a lease or if it was owned. I have flown them countless times in the past when I lived in Maputo. I remember flying their TriStar between Maputo and Lisboa non stop. At one point, they owned and operated the oldest 737 commercially...I think.

Does AF still have flights there?

No, the most recent widebody they've had was a 767, and before that a DC-10. The aircraft was used on routes to various European cities. Before that they they leased a DC-10 and even a DC-8 from UTA, I believe.
