Lusa - Business News - Cabo Verde: Flag carrier's passenger numbers up 85% following privatisation




Espargos, Cabo Verde, Dec.10,2019 (Lusa)–Passenger numbers at Cabo Verde Airlines are up by more than 85% on the year following the privatisation process that saw Icelandic investors buy 51% of shares in the former TACV, according to the company.
According to figures given to Lusa on Tuesday by an official source at the airline, from March through October it carried almost 200,000 passengers, representing a 85.4% increase on the same period a year earlier, before the privatisation.
Between March and October 2018, the then Transportes Aéreos de Cabo Verde (TACV) carried 107,027 passengers. In the same period this year, the figure for Cabo Verde Airlines was 198,457.
In March 2019, the Cabo Verde state sold 51% of TACV for €1.3 million to Lofleidir Cabo Verde, a company owned 70% by Loftleidir Icelandic EHF and 30% by Icelandic entrepreneurs with experience in the aviation sector. The sale was also foreseen of 10% of the company’s shares to employees and Cabo Verde emigrants, and the remaining 39% to other investors.
According to Cabo Verde’s government, the alternative to privatisation would have been the company’s liquidation, at a cost of more than €181 million.
According to the prime minister, Ulísses Correia e Silva, in an interview with Lusa in July, the model implemented, which foresees turning the island of Sal into a hub for transatlantic flights, "creates viability" for an airline that before privatisation was swallowing up €3 million a month.
"You don't know any country in the world with 500,000 inhabitants and per capita GDP of a $4,000 with a Boeing,” he said, referring to TACV’s previous situation. “It has no scale, size and yield. TACV's big problem was the market. The hub [of Sal] will create a market … a market of millions, in Brazil, in Europe, in America and in Africa."
The company's current fleet consists of three Boeing 757-200s, plying routes between the archipelago and Dakar, Lisbon, Paris, Milan, Rome, Boston in the UK and Fortaleza, Recife and Salvador in Brazil. It plans soon to add two more Boeing 757-200s.
According to the management, the airline aims to start flights to Luanda and other cities in west Africa, to other cities in Portugal, including Porto, and to Toronto, in Canada.
Its strategy involves the ongoing establishment of the hub at Amílcar Cabral International Airport at Espargos on Sal, for connecting flights from Africa, Europe, the US and Brazil.
After flights to Washington were launched on Sunday, and to Lagos in Nigeria on Monday – the latter five times a week - Wednesday sees the start of twice-weekly flights to Porto Alegre in Brazil.
Lusa has previously reported that Cabo Verde Airlines expects to make almost €82 million this year, and for this to quintuple by 2023 to €422 million, according to institutional information provided as part of the offer of 7.65% of its shares to emigrants, a process that is already underway.
According to the same data, the management expects turnover of more than 9.015 billion escudos (€81.9 million) this year and 23.473 billion next. Turnover is projected to rise to more than 46.450 billion in 2023.
The company's forecast is for EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax depreciation and amortisation) – a measure of profitability and efficiency – to remain negative this year, at a loss of 3.485 billion escudos, but that it will be in the red by next year, to the tune of 914 million escudos. By 2023, it is seen rising to 3.491 billion.
