Over the past couple of years, airport improvements have been underway on the island of Sal. The Amilcar Cabral International Airport now has new departure lounges and an attractive courtyard for departing passengers. These improvements have made the experience of flying from Sal much more pleasant. It seems that Cape Verde is investing in its transport infrastructure, with major works also underway at Praia airport. This investment helps to confirm the future of Cape Verde as major holiday destination. In addition to this building work, the operation of internal flights by Binter CV has also made travel within the country generally more reliable.
