Algarve wants more endeavours from TAP

The head of the Algarve Tourism Board, Desidério Silva, has said national airline TAP needs to view the Algarve “with respect”.

Algarve wants more endeavours from TAP

His comments came after the airline this week announced four new routes from Porto, and he urged the flag-carried to “think for once about the Algarve and what it represents.” He added that while northern and central Portugal should be happy with how the airline serves them, TAP should also look to build on the mere three percent of movement it represents at Faro airport, which welcomes nine million passengers a year. 

Comments

TAP could very well change its name to TAL - Transportes Aéreos de Lisboa / Lisbon Air Transports. Not only TAP but many companies and even the government headquarter in Lisbon view the rest of the country as the silly other cousins when in fact the rest of the country is by far the majority and needs respect and to have its needs addressed. It is all a matter of imposing oneself. Porto and Madeira have the same issues. I think these regions could unite a press TAP.
