TACV, the Cape Verdean airline, presented in the city of Praia its new brand image under the designation Cabo Verde Airlines.
With a design signed by the Icelandic agency Íslenska, and with the contribution of some Cape Verdeans, the new image of Cabo Verde Airlines is inspired by the colors of nature, houses, flag and other elements that reflect the islands. This new image reflects the company’s new values and mission, as well as the morabeza, a typical Cape Verdean characteristic.
The brand seeks to be unique, authentic and sophisticated while at the same time showing the Cape Verdean culture that is at the origin of Cabo Verde Airlines. The company wants to be inseparable from the country, being an extension of its traditions and its people, in a family fusion and attractive for those who choose to travel with them. The new image will be applied to wing-to-wing aircraft where passengers can feel more Cape Verdean culture.
The presentation of the new brand image of Cabo Verde Airlines follows the beginning of operations in the HUB on the island of Sal and the reinforcement of activities in the Brazilian market with reinforcement of the routes Recife, Fortaleza and, soon, opening of Salvador da Baia, with connections to Milan, Paris and Lisbon.
TACV – Cabo Verde Airlines (Praia, Cape Verde Islands) yesterday (June 3) began service to T.F. Green Airport (PVD) in Providence, Rhode Island. TACV is the official airline of Cabo Verde and offers twice weekly flights on Tuesdays and Thursday aboard 210-seat Boeing 757-200 aircraft to the city of Praia on the island of Santiago. Connecting service is also available to the Cape Verdean islands of Fogo, Sao Vincente, Sal and Boa Vista.
TACV – Cabo Verde Airlines had previously served the Cape Verdean community with flights out of Boston Logan Airport. The Cape Verdean community has a strong presence throughout New England and in some areas communities are actually closer in proximity to Green Airport. The service has traditionally been geared towards linking family and friends; however, there is a new emphasis on growing it as a tourist destination by promoting the islands’ beauty, climate, hiking, surfing and other water sports. In the coming months, the airline hopes to add to its frequency and service offerings.
Later this month, Green Airport also welcomes a second international carrier- Condor Airlines with seasonal service to and from Frankfurt, Germany and connecting European destinations.

Located about 300 miles off the coast of Senegal, Cabo Verde is renowned for its natural beauty, picturesque beaches, and “morabeza” (Creole for hospitality) of its people. The islands that make up the arrow-shaped archipelago today were discovered and colonized by the Portuguese in the 15th century. Cabo Verde gained independence in 1975 and remains one of Africa’s most stable democratic governments. Both Portuguese and Creole are spoken by many of the 450,000 Cabo Verdeans who call the island nation home.
