Cabo Verde Airlines receives second aircraft with new livery

Posted 3 June 2019 · Add Comment

Cabo Verde Airlines last Friday received the ‘Baía de Tarrafal’ - the company’s second aircraft with its new livery.

 

The ‘Baía de Tarrafal’ landed at Nelson Mandela airport in the city of Praia from Boston, USA.

The ‘Baía de Tarrafal’ colours were inspired by the houses on the island of Santiago, a call back to the very characteristic architecture of the capital. The new colours aim to be a gentle mix of the people, the houses and the Cape Verdean culture. Aside from the name on the outside of the airplane, inside the passengers will have a picture of the Baía as well as a description of the area.

All aircraft of the company will follow the same model of inspiration from every Island with the tricolour style. The colour palate inside and outside show that change comes from within, in the search to better serve the airline’s customers and to bring Cabo Verde to the world and the world to Cabo Verde.

The ‘Baía de Tarrafal’ was named through a public poll on Facebook, where the users voted between three natural beauties of the island of Santiago, with Baía de Tarrafal receiving the largest share of votes.

The first plane with new livery, ‘Praia de Santa Maria’, received its name using the same process. With these open polls through social media, the company wants to bring the Cape Verdean people closer and involve them in the process of welcoming the new airplane to the country.

There will be other open votes on Facebook dedicated to all islands.

The ‘Baía de Tarrafal’ will have 12 premium seats and 180 seats in the main cabin.
