“As has already been publicly announced, TAP is reviewing its internal mobility policy, so this [check of 450 euros] is a transitional solution”, said an official TAP source in response to the newspaper.

It should be recalled that in October it was reported that TAP ordered 50 BMW vehicles for management and directors to replace the Peugeot fleet under an operational leasing contract. However, the company ended up withdrawing from the decision, after criticism from the unions and the President of the Republic.

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa said that “in a period of difficulty, an effort must be made to set an example of restraint”, and considered that this is “a problem of common sense”.
