In international passenger air transportation, the tariff is regulated through applicable bilateral or multilateral air agreements between States.
However, in the domestic air transport of passengers, it is up to the aeronautical authority, under the terms of the Cabo Verde Aeronautical Code and its Statutes to determine the principles, bases, and tariff criteria, as well as to approve and register fares as well as to monitor compliance with the provisions of Decree-Law No. 54/2019 of December 10 - which regulates the legal regime for setting and updating the structure of air fares applicable to domestic scheduled passenger transport.
BASIC TYPES OF AIR TARIFF:
Licensed air carriers are obliged to sell at least 10% of seats in a social fare within a calendar year and for each line.
Social fares are subject to a minimum discount of 40% over the reference fare and would benefit at least the following categories of passengers:
REFERENCE BASE CHART (direct flights)
|LINE||IATA OR ICAO CODE||REFERENCE BASE TARIFF (ONE WAY/CVE)|
|Praia-São Vicente / São Vicente-Praia||RAI-VXE / VXE-RAI||9.000|
|Praia-Sal / Sal-Praia||RAI-SID / SID-RAI||8.500|
|Praia-Boa Vista / Boa Vista-Praia||RAI-BVC / BVC-RAI||8.100|
|Praia-São Filipe / São Filipe-Praia||RAI-SFL / SFL-RAI||6.700|
|Praia-Maio / Maio-Praia||RAI-MMO / MMO-RAI||3.000|
|Praia-São Nicolau / São Nicolau-Praia||RAI-SNE / SNE-RAI||8.200|
|Sal-São Vicente / São Vicente-Sal||SID-VXE / VXE-SID||9.100|
|Sal-Boa Vista / Boa Vista-Sal||SID-BVC / BVC-SID||4.600|
|Sal-São Nicolau / São Nicolau/Sal||SID-SNE / SNE-SID||7.800|
There are additional fees and service charges (optional) which are added to these maximum approved rates.
In addition to the cost, the total price of the ticket should include, beyond the value of the tariffs, all taxes, fees, or charges which it can engender, to secure clear, adequate, and unambiguous information to the client allowing him to compare prices and conditions of the offer.
Fees charged on the plane ticket in Cape Verde:
A XP value can be added to the total price of your plane ticket. XP are fees for service provision of airline and their intermediaries. Its value varies according to the type of flight (domestic or international) and the local of purchase (selling points or online platforms).
All costs that constitute the basic service price for air carriage of passengers must be issued only in the “Tariff” field, thus the “Taxes” field being prohibited for use for any value charged which does not constitute a transfer to public entities.
This solution prevents the charging of items inextricable of the basic air carriage service provision separately from the final price of that service. It guarantees that the price charged for the air carriage service provision is unique, not allowing “additional” when these are referred as related costs to the basic service provision.
