List of airports in Cape Verde
This is a list of airports in Cape Verde, which have been historically an important infrastructural need for the economy and development of the country since being an archipelago makes it impossible to have terrestrial links between the main cities and towns. As such, in addition to frequent maritime connections, every island except Brava has a domestic airport, and the number of international airports has been increasing sharply in the recent years.
Praia Airport, which was opened to international flights on September 2005, caters mainly to the Cape Verdean diaspora; Sal Airport, which previously handled all international flights, currently serves mainly the tourist industry of Sal Island. In late 2009 the São Pedro Airport (VXE) on the island of São Vicente became the new São Pedro International airport (VXR).
