Recife and Rio de Janeiro Lead in Flight Increases by TAP

LISBON —TAP has unveiled an enhanced flight schedule, increasing its frequency to several Brazilian cities, further solidifying its position in the market. Recife, the capital of Pernambuco, will witness a boost from seven to ten weekly flights. Meanwhile, Rio de Janeiro is set to benefit with an additional two flights every week, taking its tally from 10 to 12.

This growth strategy isn't confined to just these cities. São Paulo, Belém, Brasília, Natal, Maceió, Porto Alegre, and Salvador are also on the roster for increased connectivity, each set to welcome an extra weekly flight connecting them to Portugal. At the zenith of summer, TAP's grand total will reach an impressive 91 flights every week, linking 11 Brazilian capitals directly to both Lisbon and Porto. This amplification underscores TAP's commitment to delivering superior service and connectivity between Brazil and Europe.

But the airline's ambitions don't stop with Brazil. Africa, specifically the Mozambican capital, is on the radar for growth, with expectations of a jump from three to four flights weekly come next summer. Turning to North America, TAP is setting its sights on Canada and the USA. Toronto's weekly flight frequency will climb to 13, while San Francisco will enjoy an increment from five to six flights during the summer pinnacle.

Europe too will feel the ripple effect of TAP's expanding flight map. Italy stands out in this expansion strategy, as Rome is slated for a substantial surge. The Eternal City will benefit from an extra daily flight, taking its weekly frequency to a robust 35, establishing stronger ties between it and the Portuguese capitals.
