Praia Airport Reviews

Praia International Airport (IATA: RAI, ICAO: GVNP) is an airport located on Santiago Island in Cape Verde. It was opened in late 2005, replacing the old Francisco Mendes International Airport.

It is located about 3 km northeast of central Praia in the southeastern part of the island of Santiago. At the beginning of 2012, the airport was named after Nelson Mandela, not without controversy. The first flight to the new airport was on October 23, 2005. Even though the airport serves the capital and largest city, Praia, Cape Verde’s main international airport is Amílcar Cabral International Airport located on the smaller island of Sal.

Cape Verde has decided to rename its Praia International Airport after South Africa’s former president Nelson Mandela, an icon for freedom in Africa, a government statement said.
