Cabo Verde Domestic Flights

Thu Feb 02, 2006 4:13 pm

Hello Everyone,

We have a research cruise putting in at Praia in Cape Verde for a couple of days in June, with some personnel departing from the vessel and flying out of SID (Sal Island) a few days after the boat makes landfall. I have done some research on domestic flights in Cape Verde (evidently they do exist on TACV from Praia to Sal), but have not as yet been able to find anywhere to book these flights on the internet. I was wondering whether: 1) anyone may have flown on inter-CV Island flights in the past few years, and if so, how were they?; and 2) if anyone knew of an internet reservations system for these flights, or are they on a telephone reservation system only?

Many thanks in advance

Sorry I can't answer your questions, but as far as I know, there is a new airline, Halcyon Air, operating domestic flights also. Unfortunately their website is not yet functional.

Quoting Lxlgu (Reply 1):

Sorry for the delay Lxlgu! It's been a rather busy couple of days! The date will be either Jul 10, 11, or 12 - a lot depends on the final schedule for when the ship arrives, which is decided about 3 months out from the date.

Thanks for your help!
