If you are planning a trip from the United States to Cape Verde, there are a broad range of airports throughout the U.S. from which you can leave. Unfortunately, there are currently not any direct flights that provide service between the two locations. Nelson Mandela International Airport (RAI), also known as Praia International Airport, is the airport of Santiago Island in Cape Verde. RAI is the principal arrival destination for US flights. That said, there are a broad range of daily options that depart from Newark International Airport (EWR), which is located in the northern part of New Jersey, but services the Greater New York City area. Flights that depart from here may stop one or two times prior to landing in their final location. Typical layover locations may include cities like Lisbon (LIS), Portugal or Toronto (YYZ), Canada or Casablanca (CMN), Morocco, among other spots. If you’re intending to make your way to Nelson Mandela-Praia International Airport from the Midwest, then you will find that there are mainly two-stop fights that are made available from O’Hare International Airport (ORD) in Illinois’ most populous city, Chicago. These layover options will generally stop at another location in the U.S. (such as Washington, D.C. or New York City, New York) before making a stop at a city in either Europe of Africa prior to landing in its destination location. It is a similar situation for those who are planning to leave from the West Coast of the United States. There are a large number of options that are available from the northern part of California—specifically, San Francisco International Airport (SFO); however, you can expect that these flight plans will generally include at least two layovers before making the final leg of the journey to Cape Verde. The layover locations, as with flights that leave from the midwestern part of the United States, will likely be in another American city like Boston or New York, with the second layover landing in a European or African city.
Upon securing tickets for one of the available Praia flight deals, you should take some time to think about how you are going to navigate the trip from the Praia International Airport (RAI) to the center of the city. While the distance is relatively short, there are few options available to you to accommodate the journey. Typically, there are taxis that carry passengers along the route. The trip, which is roughly somewhere around 3.6 miles, and goes to the southwest, will generally take about 6 minutes. There are also a range of rental car companies that offer cars. While this is a more typical option, it will also take about 6 minutes—of course, depending on the time of day and the traffic. Rental cars will also provide you with the opportunity to explore further into Santiago Island at your leisure, if you’re hoping to see beyond the Praia city walls.
All citizens of the United States who have secured a Praia flight deal and would like to prepare for their flight will need to be sure that they have the appropriate documentation in order prior to departing for their trip. Specifically, you will be required to have a valid passport in hand. The passport must be valid for at least six months past the intended date of travel into the country—this means the departure date. Furthermore, the passport must have at least one page that is blank for immigration stamps. For intended stays that are less than 30 days, visas are not required of tourists.
