Cabo Verde Airlines is now flying to Washington, D. C.

Cabo Verde Airlines, the Cape Verdean airline, began regular flights to Washington, D. C., the capital of the United States, starting on December 8, 2019.

The inaugural flight took place this Sunday, December 8th, and departed from Amílcar Cabral International Airport, in Sal, at 09:30 am, landing at Dulles International Airport at 02:00 pm.

The route will operate three times a week, on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays departing from Sal Island and on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from Washington, D. C.

All flights will connect to Sal Island, Cabo Verde Airlines’ international hub from where it will be possible to connect to the airline’s destinations in Cabo Verde, Brazil (Fortaleza, Recife and Salvador), Senegal (Dakar), Nigeria (Lagos), and Europe (Lisbon, Paris , Milan and Rome).

In addition to the hub connections in Sal Island, Cabo Verde Airlines’ Stopover program allows passengers to stay up to 7 days in Cabo Verde and thus explore the diverse experiences on the archipelago at no additional cost on airline tickets.

This new connection seeks to strengthen the company’s presence in the North American market. Recently, Cabo Verde Airlines also decided to reinforce its connections to Boston, with one more call per week, which will start operating from December 14th.
