National flag-carrier TAP today has announced the suspension of 93% of its operations this month, which is above the 73% reduction previously forecast. The suspension, it said in a message to employees, seen by Lusa News Agency, is due to new restrictions on mobility to combat the spread of covid-19 and the further drop in demand. Among the new measures adopted to combat the pandemic are the requirement to present negative tests on boarding, the imposition of quarantines, the ban on entry of travellers and citizens of the countries most affected by the pandemic, the suspension and ban on flights and mandatory confinements.
