Airports in Luanda

Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport (LAD)


The airport is two miles (4km) from Luanda.

Getting to the city

Visitors can take a bus from the airport to the city or hire a local taxi service. Payment for a taxi will usually be in cash (kwanza or US dollars) unless travellers book transport through Allo Taxi, which provides a similar service to Uber and accepts credit card payment. Rail services are erratic, and tickets difficult to purchase. Visitors are advised to make advance arrangements to be met by their sponsor, hotel representative or business colleagues at the airport.


GMT +1.
