TAP welcomes Olympic athletes to new safety video

TAP Portugal has showcased the country’s athletes in the upcoming 2016 Olympic Games by launching a new safety video.

The Portuguese Olympic Committee’s official carrier will show the video on all of its long-haul aircraft.

The video is released the year that TAP, the leading airline to Brazil, commemorates 50 years of flights to Rio de Janeiro, the host city of the 2016 Olympic Games.

In partnership with the POC, TAP invited some of the competitors who are to represent Portugal in the Games, to host the video that encourages passengers to follow the safety rules on the aircraft.

Nelson Évora, Telma Monteiro, Fernando Pimenta, Diogo Abreu, Fu Yu, João Silva, Rui Bragança, Rui Costa, Ana Rente and Luciana Diniz star in the video which also includes a special guest appearance by Rosa Mota, the POC vice-chair and Olympic marathon champion.


The new safety video presents some of the sports that Portugal is going to compete in and the scenes often feature the athletes’ own equipment to help illustrate the on-board procedures.

Évora said he had flown on TAP many times and always pays special attention to the safety video, which was why he liked this novel idea that “promotes safety in the cabin and also promotes the athletes who are going to fly the nation’s colours”.

The new safety video aims to make passengers more aware and to remember the safety procedures, while also taking Portugal’s Olympic spirit around the world through the faces of these international athletes.
