Johannesburg - Boeing, the world's second-biggest maker of commercial aircraft, was in talks with Angola over the sale of nine passenger planes for the country's TAAG airline, the Angolan industry ministry said yesterday.
Talks on the transaction started in May, when Angolan president Jose Eduardo dos Santos visited the US.
"Should negotiations come to a successful conclusion, the Angolan airline will order the planes in 2005," the ministry said.
"The models to be acquired include six 737-700s and three 777s."
