Cape Verde and United Kingdom sign air agreement

10 January 2007

Praia, Cape Verde, 10 Jan – Cape Verde and the United Kingdom Tuesday signed an agreement to standardize their relations in the airport sector, an initiative that aims to increment and intensify air link between the two countries, including Ireland.

With regular and permanent flights the authorities and operators from both sides have said they believe that the “wave” of English and Irish tourists to Cape Verde could see a significant increase.

Cape Verde’s minister for Infrastructure, Transport and the Sea, Manuel Sousa, and the UK ambassador to Cape Verde (residing in Dakar), Peter Newall, signed the agreement to make relations official between the two states in the area of air services.

This protocol confirms the memorandum of understanding that already existed between the two countries, under the terms of which charter flights are already being carried out between the two countries. (macauhub)
