Cabo Verde Airlines (CVA) met with more than 300 Nigerian travel agents in Lagos, following a workshop organised by IATA in collaboration with the National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies (NANTA), which was co-sponsored by Cabo Verde Airlines.

 

In total, about 350 travel agents from all over Lagos attended the workshop, where Raúl Andrade, Vice President Sales & Marketing of CVA, presented the airline, its routes and its future plans to connect the Nigerian market to Cabo Verde as well as other CVA’s routes, including the United States. The session took place last Thursday, October 3rd in the Lagos Continental Hotel in Victoria Island.

CVA will start flying from Lagos to Sal, Cabo Verde, on December 9th, five times a week, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, with a Boeing 757, with 161 economy class seats and 22 executive seats

The inaugural flight is scheduled to depart from Amílcar Cabral International Airport (Sal) at 20:50 local time and arrive at Murtala Muhammed Airport (Lagos) at 02:10 local time.

All flights will connect to Sal Island, Cabo Verde Airlines' international hub, and will make connections to Lisbon (five times a week), Washington DC (three times a week) and Boston (once a week), as well as to the airline’s destinations in Brazil, Salvador, Porto Alegre, Recife and Fortaleza.

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