Cape Verde’s international airports are expected to see an increase in the number of charter flights throughout the winter season, with many new airlines operating direct flights between November and March, in order to keep up with increased demand for Winter Sun holidays.
In total it means 78 charter flights will operate every week to the Islands of Sal and Boa Vista.
Amílcar Cabral International Airport on the Island of Sal has already begun receiving flights from three new companies – Thomas Cook Belgium flies to the Island from Brussels, Condor from Frankfurt and Transavia from Amsterdam.
In total, 47 charter flights are landing on Sal every week, bringing tourists from all over Europe. In addition three new airlines are scheduled to begin operations at Aristides Pereira International Airport on the Island of Boa Vista this month – Tui Fly Nordic, which will fly from Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki, while Thomas Cook will fly from Brussels and Condor will operate flights from Frankfurt.
