Cape Town, South Africa: The flag carrier of Mozambique, LAM Mozambique Airlines (Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique), appointed AirlinePros International as its General Sales Agent (GSA) in the Western Cape province of South Africa to support the airline’s flights from Maputo (MPM) to Cape Town (CPT).
“This new route is a significant milestone in the carrier’s growth plan,” said Firmino Naftal, Commercial Director, LAM. “I am sure we will see enough support to sustain these flights.”
LAM operates three flights per week on the new MPM-CPT route using a Bombardier CRJ-900.
