Cabo Verde Airlines has recently announced more routes. Earlier in the month we announced that flights between Sal airport and Dulles Washington would be starting. Since then the company has announced further increases all commencing in December 2019. These will include an increase in the number of flights to Portugal; flights to Luanda in Angola, Porto Alegre in Brazil and to Lagos in Nigeria. The additional flights between Praia and Lisbon will also connect with Sal.
The new routes to mainland Africa and Brazil will all be from Sal. To Porto Alegre they will operate twice a week; to Lagos five times a week; to Luanda bi-weekly. These new routes are clearly a move towards Sal airport becoming an international hub. Cabo Verde Airlines is based in Sal.
