Cabo Verde Airlines receives its first 737 MAX jet

On July 20, 2023, Cabo Verde Airlines (VR) received its first fuel-efficient Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft as part of the airline’s new “take-off” relaunch strategy. The delivery was marked with a special event in Cape Verde.

Cabo Verde Airlines plans to renew its fleet, expand its network to previously operated routes following the pandemic, and offer non-stop flights from its hubs in Praia and Sal.

“The delivery of an airplane with the capabilities of the 737-8 allows us to meet the growing travel demand to our archipelago country at the crossroads of four continents.”

Sara Pires, CEO & President, Cabo Verde Airlines.

According to Boeing, the 737 MAX reduces fuel use and emissions by 20% compared to the aircraft it replaces, thanks to CFM International LEAP-1B engines and advanced technology winglets.
