Atlas Air has launched a new outsourced premium passenger private charter service on behalf of the United States-Africa Energy Association (USAEA). The service is known as the “Houston Express”.
Atlas Air is operating three weekly nonstop flights between George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston and Luanda, Angola. The newly customized Boeing 747-400 aircraft, provided by SonAir’s parent company, feature 10 First Class, 143 Business Class and 36 Economy Class seats with the latest in-flight entertainment and comfort.
The service is not available to the public but provides USAEA members with a premium, nonstop link to support long-term energy projects in West Africa.
The flights depart Houston on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for the 14-hour, 20 minute eastbound journey, returning from Luanda on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with a flight time of 15:05.
