TAP Into Success

Feb 1, 2011
2011 / February 2011

TAP Portugal is taking 2011 by storm, announcing exciting new routes, breaking records and rounding up awards.

Welcome to Miami

In summer 2011, Miami will become TAP Portugal’s second North American gateway. The airline plans to operate four weekly flights (five in the peak of summer) between Lisbon and Miami — a hub for passengers traveling between Central America, the Caribbean and Europe.

Miami is also becoming a popular destination for Portuguese travelers. In 2010, the number of Portuguese travelers visiting Miami increased by 35 percent. That number is sure to grow when TAP launches the first-ever direct service from Lisbon.

TAP also offers flights to Lisbon and Porto from Newark International Airport. Codeshares with Continental, United, US Airways and Air Canada make connections throughout North America easy and convenient.

Lisbon — Gateway to Europe

TAP’s home hub of Lisbon is fast becoming one of Europe’s most important and welcoming gateways. TAP continues to expand its European network, with plans to add six destinations in 2011. TAP will launch service to Athens with three weekly flights and to Vienna with four weekly flights. Service to both destinations will increase to five weekly flights during peak season. One flight per week to Dubrovnik, taking off this summer, will expand TAP’s European route network to 49 destinations.

Other new destinations on the TAP roster include Düsseldorf, Bordeaux and Manchester. Düsseldorf is TAP’s fourth foray into Germany, following Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg. With the addition of five flights per week to Düsseldorf, TAP now offers 54 weekly connections to Germany.

The six weekly flights to Bordeaux increase TAP’s presence in France to 154 flights per week. The new destination joins Paris, Nice, Toulouse, Marseilles and Lyon. The airline will offer daily flights to Bordeaux during the peak season.

When TAP adds five new weekly flights from Manchester (six in the summer) to its existing service to London, the airline will offer 75 weekly flights to the U.K.

Nine Million And Counting

Just as 2010 was coming to a close, TAP flew its 9 millionth passenger, setting a historic record for passengers flown in one year and exceeding its own expectations. The milestone passenger was onboard a domestic flight from Lisbon to Funchal.

Dec. 29 was record-breaking in other ways as well. A TAP customer bound for Brazil became Lisbon Airport’s 14 millionth passenger for 2010. TAP accounts for more than 50 percent of the traffic at Lisbon Airport.

Numbers don’t lie, and TAP’s continual achievements, high standards and record-breaking numbers prove the airline is one of the best.

Awards Season

The recognition never ends for Portugal’s flagship carrier. For the second consecutive year, the airline received the “World’s Leading Airline to South America” award at the World Travel Awards.

TAP looks to retain its title of “Best Airline in the World” in 2011. The airline first earned the Condé Nast Traveller recognition in 2010. For 2011, TAP was once again named to the magazine’s Gold List, the preliminary step en route to the ultimate “Best” award based on criteria including punctuality, comfort, number of flights, route network, cabin service and safety — all areas in which TAP excels. As the reigning champion and a nominee once again, it is clear TAP plays an unparalleled role in the world of travel.
