What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

It's not great but it's not bad in Luanda. Outside Luanda it's great. People who live in poorer communities definitely suffer from poor environmental conditions. - Mar 23, 2017
Air is muggy and full of particulates. There's always dust in the air. Because of the humidity, the air feels very thick in the lungs. - Apr 23, 2016
Moderate. - Mar 28, 2015
I wouldn't say unhealthy in terms of true pollution but it can be difficult due to burning of trash and constant use of generators. - Aug 31, 2014
Air quality is moderate. There are many cars and lots of exhaust from generators and vehicles. It can be very humid. - Jul 11, 2013
Moderate. - Apr 24, 2013
air quality is moderate, not so much industrial site, but lots of dust because the soil is sandy, not so many trees or greens - Aug 4, 2011
Unhealthy. Lots of traffic, and during the dry season (~8 months out of the year) the air settles in over the city and never moves. - Aug 3, 2011
