There’ll soon be a new airline livery to spot at Washington’s Dulles International Airport. Cabo Verde Airlines will add Washington to its route map this December, its second U.S. destination after Boston.

The carrier will begin thrice-weekly flights between Cabo Verde’s Sal (SID) airport and Washington Dulles (IAD) on Dec. 8, according to Diio by Cirium schedules and the company’s website. Cabo Verde will fly Boeing 757-200 aircraft on the route. Cabo Verde’s new Dulles flights were first reported by Airline Route.

Cabo Verde, formerly known as Cape Verde, is a Portuguese-speaking island nation that lies off the West Coast of Africa. The flight from SID to IAD covers a distance of 3,607 miles, according to the Great Circle Mapper website.

Also in December, the airline will also begin new service to Luanda (LAD) in Angola, and to Porto Alegre (POA) in Brazil.

Boston Logan (BOS) is Cabo Verde’s only other U.S. destination, according to Diio. The airline serves the New England city from the country’s Praia (RAI) airport.
