You seem to be well advised on which airlines can travel to Cape Verde. Can you tell me why Ryanair do not take on this route? They are well represented with a hub in Faro, which is aprox. the same distance to Glasgow(Prestwick)as Faro is to Sal. Sometimes flights to Prestwick can be as low as 10€, and from your posts I know you would happily pay in the region of 200 – 250€.

flights from Beja to Cape Verde. I was told that flights from Heathrow to Beja could be tied up with a twice weekly flight on to Cape Verde. I also understand that the authorities at Beja are very keen to make this former US Airforce base into a viable
