Binter Cabo Verde have started running the inter island flight service between the Cape Verde Islands. Not all islands have airports at the moment. The Government announced they stopped supporting TACV with funding, however there is talk that another company may take it over. I was previously informed that TACV kept a number of spare seats available for Government officials who may have to travel between islands at short notice, if these seats are not used they will release them to those on a waiting list, 30 mins before take off. I have not been told this officially!
