TAP to add 15 weekly flights from Canada & U.S. to Portugal

NEW YORK — Just how much has TAP Air Portugal expanded its North America service? In just five short years, it will have seen a 344% increase in flights between North America and Portugal.

The carrier is adding 15 new weekly flights from the U.S. and Canada to Portugal by summer 2020 for a record-setting total of 71 flights. In summer 2015, it operated just 16 flights across the Atlantic from its two U.S. gateways – Newark Liberty and Miami International.

From June 2020, TAP will serve the New York market with four daily roundtrips to Portugal. It will add a second daily flight between New York-JFK, plus an extra weekly flight to its Newark-Porto service, making it a daily operation along with its daily Newark-Lisbon service.

Another two weekly Miami-Lisbon flights are coming this winter, and a third next summer for a weekly total of 10 roundtrips. Moreover, it is also adding two weekly frequencies to Chicago-Lisbon, and Washington, D.C.-Lisbon, making each into a daily service.

TAP also serves both Boston-Lisbon and Toronto-Lisbon daily, and San Francisco-Lisbon with five flights weekly.

This summer, TAP’s fleet reached 100 aircraft for the first time in the airline’s 74-year history. It has started receiving an order of 71 new Airbus aircraft, including 21 A330neos, 17 A321neos, and 14 A321 Long Range jets.
