Travelling To Cape Verde

Cape Verde is relatively easily accessed from Europe and, due to its increasing popularity as a tourist destination, communications to the islands are constantly being improved. Find out here how best to get to Cape Verde.


With a flight time of 5 ½ hours from the UK, Cape Verde is relatively quick and easy to get to. As the tourist and property markets expand, many new flight options are now becoming available, making travel to and from the islands even easier.

Currently the most direct way to get to your Cape Verde property is via Lisbon airport in Portugal and then fly directly to Sal Island or Santiago Island. There are many airlines now offering daily flights to Lisbon, not only via the major airports but also through many of the smaller “local” airports. Flights arrive on Sal Island which has an international airport, as well as Santiago Island where the new international airport has recently opened. Travel onwards to other islands can then be via daily flights or ferry.

November 2006 will see direct flights to Cape Verde from UK airports initially starting from Birmingham. In addition, there will be an 'Open Skies' policy allowing other airlines to fly to Cape Verde and forcing lower air fares through competition.

With the opening of the new international airport in the Capital Praia, on Santiago island, Cape Verde is experiencing the dawn of a bright future in tourism for the Islands.
