Cabo Verde air carrier resumes flights to Guinea-Bissau

5 June 2015

TACV Cabo Verde Airlines resumed Wednesday regular flights to the capital of Guinea-Bissau, which had been suspended in April 2012 following a state coup, with the arrival of an aircraft inn Bissau airport.

The return of regular air links is part of an agreement signed between the governments of both countries during a visit by the Prime Minister of Guinea-Bissau to Cabo Verde archipelago at the beginning of this year.

The spokesperson for the Board of Directors of TACV, Laura Silva, said that from now on the Cape Verdean carrier would offer two weekly flights to Bissau, and on Sundays the flight will follow the Praia / Dakar / Bissau / Praia route and on Wednesdays the Praia / Bissau / Dakar / Praia route.

Following the re-launch of the air link, the governments of both countries now plan to create conditions for regular maritime links. (macauhub/CV/GW)
