Cape Verde’s flagship air carrier Transportes Aéreos de Cabo Verde (TACV) is negotiating regular flights to several countries and plans to use Beja airport, as of April 2014, as a stop over, said the airline’s delegate for Portugal, Mário Almeida .
According to radio station Rádio Pax, Cape Verde’s airline is studying the use of Beja on several routes to airports where its operates, such as Amsterdam, Paris, Warsaw and Fortaleza (Recife, Brazil).
Mário Almeida also said that he had called for the airline to make use of Beja airport for some time as with the use of Boeing 737s, that airport “is the ideal place for technical and commercial stop overs.”
The Ferreira do Alentejo municipal council is one of the entities involved in the process and its representatives have pledged soon to provide details of a project that aims to transfer new flights to Beja, an airport that has practically been left unused since it was opened two years ago.
