Honorary Chairman of The Resort Group, Rob Jarrett has confirmed that TAP Portugal has added Boa Vista to their Cape Verde routes with a twice weekly direct service from Lisbon.
Rob Jarrett confirmed the new service whilst attending high level Government meetings in Cape Verde, and stated "The new service, on offer from 27th October 2013, will commence on Tuesdays and Saturdays as part of the airline’s winter schedule."
Rob added "This is excellent news for both property owners in Cape Verde as well as the increasing number of tourists visiting the Islands. It demonstrates the on-going trend for increasing tourism and more holiday makers coming to Cape Verde"
TAP will now offer 15 flights a week from the UK to the Cape Verde Islands, via Lisbon, with the Boa Vista route joining an already extensive weekly schedule including six flights to Sal, five to Santiago / Praia and two to Sao Vicente. Just four hours flying time from Lisbon, the archipelago of Cape Verde is made up of ten islands surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. An extraordinary and relatively undiscovered region, each island is dramatically different, from volcanic, lunar landscapes and tropical greenery to endless white beaches and crystal-clear waters, as well as a variety of accommodation; there is an option to suit every traveller. The new route will also further expand TAP’s existing connections, via Lisbon, to 75 destinations in 35 countries worldwide including Africa and North and South America.
