‘Good occupation’ leads TAP to increase winter flights to Gatwick Plus twice weekly flights 2 Boa Vista Cape Verde Islands
National airline TAP is to bump up its winter flights between the Portuguese and British capitals after announcing it will be increasing its weekly flights to Gatwick by three.
An airline spokesperson told The Portugal News that the increase was due to the “good occupancy” registered on its Lisbon-Gatwick flights.
Throughout the coming winter season, which starts on 27 October, the national flag-carrier will operate 49 flights a week between Lisbon and London; 38 to Heathrow and 11 to Gatwick.
From Oporto it will operate 14 weekly flights between Lisbon and Gatwick, and the airline will fly from Funchal (Madeira), to London seven times per week.
In summer TAP flies from Funchal to Gatwick, whereas in winter it flies to Heathrow.
The airline also flies seven times a week from Lisbon to Manchester, thus operating a total of 77 weekly flights between Portugal and the UK.
There are no direct TAP flights between the UK and Faro (Algarve).
Furthermore, during the coming winter season, October-March, TAP will be introducing two new destinations into its network with twice-weekly flights to Boavista (Cape Verde) and five flights a week to Tangier (Morocco).
