Always pre-check your flights from all islands. Contact the airport before leaving your accommodation, or the day before if it is an early morning flight the next day. Some schedule flights are occasionally brought forward to an earlier flight time.
Cabo Verde Express do provide special offers for flights between islands. Its good that we now have two airline companies offering an inter island flight service. However the Halcyon air flights may have conditions as to when you fly and return, with less flexibility as they are normally charter flights.
From Santiago you can fly to the Canaries, Boston and Brazil.
It is a much busier airport than Sal and the even smaller airport on Sao Vicente. I did not notice as many shops or offices there as there is at Sal airport. Like Sal, the Internal Departures and Arrivals areas are separate to the International Arrival and Departures areas.
The taxi from the airport to the hotel cost us 1,000 escudos, but on return another taxi only cost us 400escudos!
