LAM Mozambique Airlines Reviews

LAM – Mozambique Airlines, S. A. (LAM – Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique, S. A.) or Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique, Ltd., operating as LAM Mozambique Airlines, is the flag carrier of Mozambique. The airline was established by the Portuguese colonial government of Mozambique in August 1936 as a charter carrier named Direcção de Exploração de Transportes Aéreos, and was renamed in 1980 following reorganisation.

LAM Mozambique Airlines is based in Maputo, and operates scheduled services in southern Africa. The company is a member of the International Air Transport Association, and of the African Airlines Association since 1976. LAM Mozambique Airlines is on the list of airlines banned in the EU, as of April 2011. The newest aircraft on LAM’s fleet is the Embraer 190, the first of which the airline took possession of in August 2009. The carrier received the second aircraft of the type a month later. Three of these aircraft were in operation until November 2013, when Flight 470 crashed in Namibia. In early December, a Boeing 737 was leased to fill the capacity shortage created by the crashed airframe.

As of December 2013, the LAM – Mozambique Airlines fleet consists of the following aircraft: Boeing 737-500 and Embraer 190.
