TAP to launch flights from London City Airport

TAP is launching flights from London City Airport to Lisbon, in addition to its services already available from Heathrow and Gatwick.

Available now for customers to book, the flights will operate from October 29th, with two daily flights from Monday to Friday and one daily flight on weekends.

With the new addition to its network, TAP becomes the only airline to offer the route between London City, located in the financial heart of the capital, and the cosmopolitan destination of Lisbon, making short breaks and travel for both business and leisure even more convenient for those starting their journey in London.

The direct flights between London City and Lisbon will operate with Embraer 190 aircraft, with seat capacity for 106 passengers, departing London at 10:20 and 7:50, from Monday to Friday.

Times departing Lisbon are 7:00 and 16:30.


On weekends, the operation is daily.

On Saturdays, departing London at 10:20 and Lisbon at 7:00 and on Sundays, London at 19:50 and Lisbon at 16:30.

This latest news highlights a continuation of TAP’s reinforced focus on the UK market, and the airline’s efforts to ensure a greater offering for UK passengers, which has already resulted in a 20.3 per cent increase in the number of passengers travelling between London and Lisbon in the first quarter of 2017, year-on-year.

By offering flights to its hub of Lisbon from the three major London airports, London City, Heathrow and Gatwick, TAP is able to provide a variety of travel options to passengers exploring Portugal as their final destination, as well as further connecting the UK traveller to its extensive intercontinental network, across Africa, North, Central and South America.
