With immediate effect the global aviation and tourism management company will be in charge of all future sales, marketing and ticketing activities to establish the brand within the new market and to promote the attractive range of flights offered by TAP Portugal. This new agreement marks the fourth collaboration after similar agreements for the Polish, Ukrainian and Russian markets.

Due to an additional partnership agreement with Lufthansa, feeder flights also connect Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya and Bursa with Frankfurt and Munich, from where TAP continues to its base in Lisbon.
From Lisbon, passengers can easily continue their journey by taking one of the numerous TAP flights to other destinations within Portugal and beyond.
