European customers seeking flights to Brazil have seen TAP Portugal emerge as the dominant player in the sector during 2010.
In July this year the airline began offering three flights a week to Viracopos Airport (VCP) in São Paulo, becoming the first international airline to fly to the destination.
The decision was just the latest in a far reaching commitment to the country from TAP Portugal, with the airline already offering departures to Fortaleza, Natal, Salvador, Recife, Brasília, Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo Guarulhos Airport.
In total TAP now offers a total of 69 flights per week between Europe and Brazil in its summer schedule, boarding more customers than any other international airline.
