Angola may ban European airlines

European airlines may ban from the Angolan airspace fro the European blacklisting of the country's flag-carrier, as the Angolan government warn.

The decision was "groundless.", as the Angolan Deputy Transport Minister Helder Preza said.

"We will have to study the decision and act accordingly," Preza told Radio Nacional de Angola, adding that the government would "use the principle of reciprocity.", on the last Sunday.

TAAG flies to Paris and Lisbon, Portugal. Air France, British Airways and TAP Air Portugal all fly to the Angolan capital, Luanda.

TAAG said its fleet was "Africa's most modern," and accused the EU of trying to keep African airlines out of the market, according to a statement.
