Cabo Verde Airlines resumes flights to Bissau in July

Cape Verde Airlines will resume connecting flights between the city of Praia and Bissau in July, said the director general of the company that manages the Osvaldo Vieira airport in the Guinean capital.
Aliu Soares Cassamá, representative of Menzies Aviation Bissau, which manages Guinea-Bissau’s only international airport, announced the resumption of flights by the Cape Verdean company for July, ten years after they were suspended.
Last week, Cassamá met with a Cape Verdean delegation, which included the country’s ambassador, Camilo Leitão da Graça, and the commercial director and operations director of the company, also known as TACV (Transportes Aereos de Cabo Verde).
“The meeting served to get the details right. In July Cape Verde Airlines will resume flights to Bissau,” assured Aliu Soares Cassamá, adding that the company will have connections to Lisbon, Paris, Brazil and the United States.
The Guinean official noted that with the resumption of flights by the Cape Verdean company, Bissau’s Osvaldo Vieira airport will have 16 flights per week, offered by two Portuguese companies (TAP and EuroAtlantic), RAM (Royal Air Maroc), Air Senegal, Air Côte d’Ivoire and Asky.
