Airports

There are four international airports in Cape Verde: Amílcar Cabral International Airport, SID (Sal), Nelson Mandela International Airport, RAI (Santaigo), Aristides Pereira International Airport, BVC (Boa Vista), Cesária Évora Airport, VXE (Sao Vicente). There are regular flights from several major European cities, including Lisbon, Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid, Munich and several UK cities, as well as from Morocco, Boston and Fortaleza, Brazil, with most international flights traveling to Sal or Santiago. There are also domestic airports on all islands except Brava. If you will be traveling a lot between islands, it is recommended to buy a TACV Cabo Verde AirPass (only available for purchase outside Cape Verde). Many hotels can arrange a pickup service from the airport, and taxis are readily available at all terminals. A cheaper option is to take an 'aluguer', a kind of shared taxi, though this can be less convenient as they follow fixed routes.
