Getting There & Away"See new direct flight news below"

Flying is the only realistic option for getting to and from Cape Verde. There are infrequent sea services, but they'll probably end up costing as much as a plane ticket. There are regular flights from Lisbon and less frequent flights from other European centers.

Praia airport is opening in 2006. It takes half the time it takes from Northern Europe to the Caribbean.  No inoculations are required - visas can be bought on arrival for around 30 and only  5 and half hours flight from the UK.  They are the nearest  Islands to the Tropics from Europe.  Only 1 hour flight beyond the Canaries.  At the bottom of this page you can see which airlines are operating flights to cape Verde.  These are in the process of changing, read the statement below from TACV commercial director.

TACV-Cabo Verde Airlines,   Commercial Director                  

Please be informed to all interested in investments in Cape Verde and also to potential clients that TACV-Cabo Verde Airlines has a Strategic Plan which include UK direct flight starting on Nov 2006, as its market priorities.
On February 2005, TACV request Cape Verde Civil Aviaton to develop a Bilateral Air Services with UK and in consequence Cape Verde Civil Aviation address this request to The Cape Verde Foreign Affair for
