Cabo Verde Airlines plans to start flying to the city of Natal, in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte, starting in November 2015, according to state’s government press office. The information was disclosed after a meeting on 3 September, in Natal, between leaders of the Cape Verdean airline and Gina Robinson, the state’s secretary for Tourism. The NewAvia website, cited by weekly Cape Verdean newspaper A Semana, said that Cabo Verde Airlines had submitted plans to connect the island of Sal to the city of Natal, from November 2015, a flight that is included in its restructuring and development programme. Since 2009, Cabo Verde has had a weekly direct link to northeast Brazil, to Pinto Martins International Airport in Fortaleza. The flight to Fortaleza mainly carries businesspeople and students studying at universities in that region of Brazil.
