Sal Amilcar Cabral International Airport in a nutshell

Krystof Hajek updated 8. 11. 2023

Amilcar Cabral Airport is the most important airport in Cape Verde and is located on the island of Sal near the popular tourist resort of Santa Maria (18 km).

Most charter flights to Cape Verde land at Sal airport. Other scheduled flights from here go to Portugal, Morocco, the Canaries and of course the other Cape Verdean islands.

The single terminal is small and rather dated, but it is clean throughout and is therefore a standard tourist airport. Orientation here is very easy as the terminal has only one level common to all flights.

The cheapest tickets to Sal are normally purchased with a connection in Lisbon via the Portuguese airline TAP.
