LUANDA introduction:

Basics:
The Port provides services 24/7. Traffic is under management of Luanda Port Authority and Port Captain. Tugs are operated by a local tugboat company.

Peripheral Cities:
Since divided into two parts, Luanda has the Baixa de Luanda as the old city and the Cidade Alta as the new one. Situated next to the Port, Baixa de Luanda has narrow streets and old colonial constructions. Some previously independent nuclei like Viana, were incorporated into the city. Luanda Sul is a satellite city of Luanda.

Traffic:
Luanda is the starting point of the Luanda railway. The railway has been left non-functional due to the civil war, but has been restored up to Dondo and Malanje. Luanda’s main airport is Quatro de Fevereiro Airport, the largest in the country. As the largest in Angola, the Port connects Angola to the rest of the world. Luanda's roads were in a poor state of repair, but are continuously undergoing reconstruction in order to relieve traffic jam in the city. The suburban services of the Luanda Railway provide public transit.

Port Area:
Each of the Port’s 5 terminals has their own specific purpose. MULTITERMINAIS is a break-bulk terminal. SOGESTER is a container terminal. SONILS is an oil and gas terminal. UNICARGAS and SOPORTOS are both multipurpose terminals. There is also a fishing port.

Development:
The Port serves as the largest one of Angola and builds connection between Angola and the rest of the world.

Climate:
Hot semi-arid climate is a feature of Luanda. The climate is warm to hot but dry because of the cool Benguela Current. Fog frequently prevents temperatures from falling at night. This region has an annual rainfall of 405 mm but the variability is among the highest in the world. March and April are the rainy season.
