Which airlines fly within Cabo Verde?
There are currently three airlines within Cabo Verde — Cabo Verde Airlines, Cabo Verde Connect Services and Transport Interlihas de Cabo Verde (TICV). Out of these three airlines, only TICV offers domestic flights within the country, with the other two offering international flights only.
TICV, or Transport Interlihas de Cabo Verde, is an airline that is based at Nelson Mandella International Airport, Praia. It only flies domestic inter-island flights within Cape Verde and doesn't offer any international flights.
TICV connects Praia with several other destinations within Cape Verde. It flies from Praia to Boa Vista, Maio, Sal, Santiago, São Filipe, São Nicolau and São Vincente.
All flights from TICV fly via Praia. This means that if you want to fly between two destinations within Cape Verde and neither of Praia, you will have to get a connecting flight that stops at Praia. For example, if you wanted to fly from Sal to São Filipe, you will have to fly from Sal to Praia and then get a connecting flight from Praia to São Filipe.
At this time, TICV is the only airline that offers domestic flights within Cabo Verde and, therefore, the only way to travel around the islands by air.
