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.

Natal becomes the 14th scheduled destination for the airline from its Ilha do Sol base.

In March 2017, TACV Cabo Verde Airlines annunced it was in talks with CEIBA Intercontinental ove 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. TACV's fleet currently consists of one ATR42-500 (stored at Praia), three ATR-500s, and one B757-200, all of which it uses to operate regular domestic flights as well as flights to Amsterdam, Bissau, Dakar, Fortaleza, Lisbon, Paris CDG, Providence, Recife, and Rotterdam internationally.
