About Cape Verde


Cape Verde is a volcanic archipelago formed by ten islands, nine of which inhabited, and eight islets, reaching a total surface of 4033 km². Located at 445km off the west coast of Africa, its 510.000 inhabitants are well known for their '‘morabeza’', a word that transmits the best these paradise islands can offer.


Cape Verde homes a variety of musical styles due to the mixture of various European and African music forms: morna – worldwide popularized by the eternal diva, Cesária Évora – batuque, funaná, mazurka, and tabanca are the most popular music styles.


The climate is tropical dry with two main seasons: the dry season, between November and July, and the wet season, from August to October. The average annual temperature swings around 25º C, which makes Cape Verde a 365-day sunshine country with beautiful, sunny beaches. With a privileged location in the middle of the world and close to Europe, America and Africa, these ‘small grains’ of land are your ideal holiday destination.

The official language is Portuguese, but people usually speak Capeverdean Creole, a mother-tongue to be proclaimed Cape Verde’s official language. Each island has its own Creole variety.


To the south you can find the Leeward Islands of Maio, Santiago, Fogo and Brava. There are two types of islands according to the relief: flat islands surrounded by long and wide beaches – Sal, Boavista and Maio – and the high, contrasted mountain islands – Santo Antão, Santiago, Fogo, San Vicente, San Nicolau and Brava – where you can see black sand beaches.

On international flights, classes Y, M, Q, W, B, N have 30kg of checked luggage.

You need at least 28,000 miles for the Silver Card and 48,000 miles for the Gold Card.

April 2017

Cabo Verde Government announced it had a plan to recover airline TACV

The Cape Verdean government already has a credible plan for the recovery and restructuring of Cabo Verde’s (Cape Verde’s) flagship airline Transportes Aéreos de Cabo Verde (TACV). TACV has an accumulated debt of US$120 million, which represents 8% to 9% of the country’s gross domestic product.


March 2017

TACV Cabo Verde Airlines announced it was in talks with CEIBA Intercontinental over a potential partnership agreement. Potentially under the agreement, TACV would source a B737-800 from the Equatoguinean carrier to replace a similar jet - D4-CBX, which was repossessed by AerCap last year.

The aircraft will be dry-leased from CEIBA given TACV's operational mandate requires its fleet to be registered in Cape Verde. As talks are still in progress, Sá Nogueira could give no tentative timeframe as to the aircraft's delivery.



March 2017

TACV Cabo Vede Airlines is set to benefit as Cabo Verde announced it was preparing a set of measures to further open up the archipelago to foreign investment. Recent developments and prospects for this year in the Cabo Verde archipelago are the focus of the first of the Africa Reports, a new publication launched this month, joining Africa Monitor Intelligence, Legis-PALOP, a legal knowledge and information sharing platform and Eupportunity , a consultancy specialised in European affairs. TACV Cabo Verde Airlines will benefit from these opening up measures.


The government of Cabo Verde is expected to present concrete solutions for flagship airline TACV in the first quarter of 2017. The Minister stressed he was looking for resources to compensate people and said steps were being taken to ensure that TACV can operate in conditions of profitability and sustainability. TACV Cabo Verde is going to face competition from Spanish regional airline Binter Canarias, which is planning on establishing a subsidiary in Cape Verde, an archipelago of islands offer the northwest coast of Africa. Cape Verde was selected because the archipelago is similar to Binter Canarias' core operation, between the Spanish Canary Islands. The new subsidiary, Binter CV, will initially operate two ATR 72-500s, although the fleet is expected to grow to four or five aircraft. These are being phased out of Binter Canarias’ main operation in favor of newer ATR 72-600s.

TACV Cabo Verde Airlines launched a weekly service between Ilha do Sol (SID) and Natal (NAT) in Brazil on 20 November. The 2,849-kilometre sector will operate each Friday and be flown by the carrier’s 757-200s. The route will not face any direct competition. Natal becomes the 14th scheduled destination for the airline from its Ilha do Sol base. In November 2016, The Prime Minister of Cabo Verde (Cape Verde) on Monday admitted the possibility of dissolution of the country’s flagship airline, Transportes Aereos de Cabo Verde (TACV), but gave assurances that the government will do everything to avoid this scenario.



July 2017

TACV Cabo Verde Airlines is set to benefit as Vacation Express is excited to announce the launch of a new route in July 2017 to Cancun from T.F. Green Airport. This non-stop charter service will depart weekly leaving every Friday starting with its inaugural flight on July 7th through July 28, 2017 with options available for 6-night, all-inclusive vacation packages at any one of the 100+ hotels offered by Vacation Express or, for those who already have a place to stay, low prices on roundtrip airfare. International service includes TACV, which flies year round from PVD to Cabo Verde, Norwegian Airlines, which will be starting nonstop service to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Norway, and Scotland in the summer of 2017, and Azores Airlines with seasonal service to Ponta Delgada and beyond. Cargo carriers, Fed Ex and UPS, round out the service.
