Cabo Verde Airlines has announced in view of Covid-19 and taking into account the action of the Government of Cabo Verde to close the country´s borders, it will suspend all its transport activities from 18-03-2020 and for a period of at least 30 days.

The Government of Cabo Verde banned flights to Italy at the end of February, leading the company to suspend flights to Rome and Milan. The Government decided, as of 18th March, to ban all air connections with Portugal and all European countries with Covid-19 cases, as well as for the United States of America, Brazil, Senegal and Nigeria.

Recently, Cabo Verde Airlines had already suspended flights to Washington, D. C. (USA), Porto Alegre (Brazil) and Lagos (Nigeria), now canceling the routes to Boston (USA), Lisbon (Portugal), Paris (France), Dakar (Senegal), Fortaleza and Recife (Brazil).

Cabo Verde Airlines is registering a high number of requests for information from its customers and ensures that it is doing everything to respond to all passengers.

The company said it continues to talk with the major shareholders and local authorities in order to assess if any special flights, humanitarian, repatriation or cargo, need to be maintained in order to ensure that the archipelago does not become isolated and that necessary goods, such as medicine can be supplied.
