TAP launches flights from Porto to Luanda

TAP will launch two direct connections to Luanda from Porto, with frequency reinforcements in other international destinations, according to a statement released this Friday about the operation in the coming months.


According to a statement issued this Friday by the Portuguese airline, TAP "doubles intercontinental flights in Porto in 2023", with "new direct flights from Porto to Luanda and daily flights to New York" in the next summer IATA (International Air Transport Association), which runs from the end of March until the end of October.

In the text, TAP reports that the flight to Luanda will be inaugurated "at the end of May 2023, with two weekly connections", something that still "depends on government approvals".

"Direct flights between Francisco Sá Carneiro airport and New York, currently two a week, will now take place every day (seven flights a week)", and will be operated by the Airbus 321 Long Range.

The company also mentions the existence, as of next summer, of an "optimized timetable" for Brazil, "with three flights a week from Francisco Sá Carneiro airport to São Paulo and two to Rio de Janeiro".

"With these additions, TAP almost doubles the offer of intercontinental flights at Francisco Sá Carneiro airport, increasing Porto's connection to two of the most important tourism outbound markets, the United States of America and Brazil, and also to a city of growing importance in terms of business with the North region, Luanda", argues the company led by Christine Ourmières-Widener.

As for international medium-haul destinations, "the European routes with the most demand will be reinforced", with a focus on Switzerland, according to the company.

"The Geneva route will have one more flight per week, increasing from four to five weekly frequencies, as well as Zurich, which grows from three to five flights per week", says the company in this Friday's announcement.

The company also mentions that "TAP's entire network of European destinations to and from Porto", including London, Paris, Luxembourg and Funchal, will now be operated "exclusively on Airbus aircraft [320], promoting greater consistency and quality of product offered and a 10 percent increase in capacity, in terms of available seats".

TAP also adds that "the ATR propeller planes are no longer used on the Porto – Lisbon air link, which will now be operated exclusively by jet planes in the summer".
