With the launch of a new route to Africa, TAP now covers 17 African cities in 11 countries.
In addition to Conakry (Guinea), the airline also flies to Luanda (Angola), Maputo (Mozambique), S.

In 2018, TAP’s African routes saw a significant rise in the number of passengers: 116,000 more than in 2017, totalling 1.1 million passengers, which is a growth of 11.2 per cent compared to the previous year.
TAP – which is considered the World’s Leading Airline to Africa by voters at the World Travel Awards - thus continues to expand its offerings in all markets where it operates.
