Government official calls Luxair’s announcement about an increase in weekly flights to Cabo Verde “extraordinary”

Lisbon, 30 Aug (Inforpress) – The Minister of Tourism and Transport, Carlos Santos, classified as “extraordinary” the announcement by the Luxembourg company Luxair to start flying to the city of Praia and increase weekly flights to Sal, São Vicente and Boa Vista

Speaking to Inforpress, the person responsible for the transport portfolio said that the last time he visited Luxembourg, he had information about that desire to “increase” the number of flights to Cabo Verde and also to the city of Praia, in the contacts he had with Luxair.

“It is extraordinary news for tourism and for the emigrant community that is residing in Luxembourg and the neighboring countries, because this also means another opportunity for our emigrants and tourism”, he considered.

For Carlos Santos, having a significant Cape Verdean community in Luxembourg, it is still an opportunity for people who want to live in Cape Verde, such as the elderly who have expressed interest in spending long periods of time in the archipelago.
