By invitation from the Administration of T. F. Green Airport- Rhode Island, the Consul General Cabo Verde in the USA, Pedro Graciano Carvalho visited that airport’s infrastructure which, starting June 2 of this year will become the gateway for direct flights between Cabo Verde and the United States.
During the meeting, attended among others by the President and CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation, Kelly Fredericks and the head of the representation of TACV in the USA, Alexandre Furtado, they expressed a desire to work together to ensure a smooth transition in the change of TACV flights from Boston Logan to T.F.Green Airport .
One of the immediate concerns is to bring to potential travelers, information about the available connections between Green and other American cities, and the ease of connection to the Logan airport and South Station in Boston.
The Administration of the Green recommends that passengers who want use the commuter rail from South Station (Boston), to T.F.Green, to take the train # 809 which departs at 13:45PM, arriving at 15:10PM at the airport. And for passengers from Cabo Verde with final destination at Boston, to use the train # 8802 departing at 7:10PM from the airport to the city of Providence, where there are other connection options.
In addition, some micro-businesses of Cabo Verdean residents in Massachusetts have been announcing shuttle services in private buses to transport passengers in both directions.
For those who wish to drive, the Airport is of I-95 South on exit 13. Parking at the T.F.Green is very affordable, about ten dollars / day and $50 / week.
