TAP to resume 40% of flights in September

TAP has said that the company intends to restore around 40 percent of its normal pre-pandemic operation, with 66 routes in August and 76in September, representing a total of 700 flights per week.

“TAP is gradually restoring its operation and has approximately 500 weekly round-trip flights scheduled for August, across a total of 66 routes. In September, the company plans to carry out around 700 flights a week, across a total of 76 routes” reads a company statement.

In August, the increases will see TAP offering 18 weekly flights to Brazil, 20 flights to six destinations in North America, 44 flights to nine destinations in Africa, 329 flights to 30 cities in Europe and 126 flights to six national airports.

In August, Porto will also have connections to Ponta Delgada, Rio de Janeiro, Newark, London, Milan and Zurich, which will join the connections to Paris, Luxembourg and Funchal, which were restored in July.

In September, the Porto - Amsterdam route will also begin.

The national air carrier expects to have 22 flights a week to Brazil in September, 30 flights on eight routes in North America, 59 flights to 13 cities in Africa and the Middle East, 498 flights to 35 European cities and 159 flights between six cities from Portugal.

“The list of routes and flights may be adjusted whenever circumstances require, given the dynamics of the changing of taxes and restrictions in the various countries, due to the evolution of the pandemic, as well as changes in customer demand”, it says.
