Mark,

You obviously dont know TACV well . Sorry to give bad news but this company are a state run joke - it is nearly impossible to book a flight with them as they have no website . Try FLYTACV.COM - there may be a phone number on there. Or do a search and you may get an Amsterdam phone number. However, I have managed to book a flight via email with them - try reservas@tacv.aero. Best of luck.

Hi Stevec,
There also appears to be something happening at Beja, in Central Portugal. I am told it is an old US airforce base, with a 3Km runway, which has been converted for domestic flights. At the moment they are looking for carriers to use the facility, and our old friend TACV have already done a trip from there to Sal. I am also told that there are currently two flights per week coming in from Heathrow, which depending on price, might suit some people. The more the merrier!!

Hi , I bet that Heathrow flight will be jam packed its so well advertised . Depending on price - yes - try and find out the price - I bet its impossible (subject to what Diddy has just said - I bet you cant see time table or price selection but can only put in a specific hit or miss date so you get so fed up with searching you give up). Thanks for the info anyway

Hi Steve. It's not like you to be so defeatist, you're normally so positive. Hope things are still good for you.

I guess a good way of checking who flys where etc. is to use skyscanner.net

Just put in the country you are based in, eg. UK, & SID for the destination. Click on the calendars & select whole year & bingo! You get all direct routes & a whole bunch of indirect suggested routes & carriers.

Sorry I don't know how you might find out about proposed/potential routes though.

Hope this helps. It's a good starting point for research anyway.

Hi Diddy,

I have never been positive about TACV. I just looked at Opodo and you can only find TAP flights Heathrow to Sal - not TACV - with a stopover in Lisbon. Looks like the TACV flight is doomed to fail already if you cant find it. I will follow your Sky Scanner advice - thanks !

I meant you are usually positive about CV not T.A.C.V.

I was originally responding to the Barcelona -Sal flights which you can find on Opodo. I havent looked, but if you cannot find the Heathrow flights, then maybe they dont exist yet via T.A.C.V, or are a code share.

Just read JB's post. I think he/she was saying that 2 flights come into the Portuguese airport from Heathrow & if TACV start flying from there it would be another possible connection point for Sal.

Have a great day.

What a grand job TACV's marketing director is doing. I bet everyone knew you could already fly from Madrid to Sal and I bet everyone knows how to find the prices and book the flights (apart from through the search engines which come up with routes that take 19 hours and cost #1500 and where you cannot specify a date range so you give up after two tries). How anyone could disagree with privatisation ........

Celestino Carvalh0 - I bet your flights are really full. If you would like to know why there is such great demand - the 5 P's of marketing are

P - Price - Customers must know what they are
P - People - Customers do actually exist but you cannot find them as they cannot find you
P - Promotion - Have you heard of this word ?
P - Physical - Customers must actually be able to physically buy your product
P - Places - Where do you fly to ?
