TAP Portugal is set to further develop the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance, which dates back to the Middle Ages in 1373 and is said to be the oldest alliance in the world, with the introduction of a more frequent service on two of its Portuguese routes.
From October 28th, TAP will take off daily from Manchester delivering passengers to the Portuguese capital Lisbon, while also offering a daily connection for Londoners from Heathrow to the Portuguese archipelago, Madeira.
Daily flights will take off from the North West’s major airport to Lisbon and also daily from Heathrow to Funchal, Madeira - further cementing TAP’s status as one of Europe’s most prominent international carriers.
The airline will offer a two-class, efficient service with all the usual perks of flying with TAP; including free food and drink, free advance seat selection, 23kg hold baggage allowance and the exclusive Executive and Victoria frequent flyer services.
Mancunian’s will be a mere three hours away from Portugal’s vibrant capital and warm weather, whilst Funchal will provide Londoners with access to a relaxing island escape from the city’s hustle and bustle.
Serving a total of 75 destinations across 35 countries worldwide, TAP Portugal is currently the main carrier between the UK and Portugal, also with expanding connections to Africa, North and South America.
These include direct flights between Lisbon and ten destinations within Brazil.
Through the addition of these services, TAP aims to strengthen and cultivate their network and presence within the UK market.
TAP Portugal is considered the World’s Leading Airline to Africa by the World Travel Awards.
