Posted 10 December 2019 · Add Comment

Cabo Verde Airlines has began regular flights to Lagos, Nigeria.

 

The inaugural flight took place this Monday, December 9th, departing from Amílcar Cabral International Airport, in Sal, at 10:45 pm and arriving at Murtala Muhammed Airport (Lagos) at 04:30 am local time.

Before leaving, Erlendur Svavarsson, Board Member of Cabo Verde Airlines, stressed the importance of starting the Lagos route in the company's strategy to connect Africa to the other continents where it operates.

“As from today, Lagos will be even more connected to the world, since with Cabo Verde Airlines’ hub in Sal it will be easier to travel to the United States, Brazil, and Europe. Cabo Verde is also still unknown to the Nigerians, which I am sure will change from now on,” he said.
