Starting June 10th, one of the most respected airlines in the world, TAP Portugal, will offer five weekly nonstop flights from Toronto to Lisbon, with onward connections to both Europe and Africa.
The timing couldn’t be better. Portugal, also known as Europe’s “best kept secret,” has never been hotter. Travel + Leisure magazine just named Portugal as the Destination of the Year and it ranked at the top of 2017 must-see lists from Departures magazine and the Associated Press.
Serving seven destinations in Portugal, TAP Airlines allows Canadians to connect from Lisbon to Porto, Portugal’s second largest city, Azores, Madeira, and even Algarve. Lisbon is the second closest European capital to North America, making it a natural gateway to Europe.
TAP also recently introduced their Portugal Stopover program, allowing travellers to experience two destinations for the price of one. Whether you’re flying to destinations in Portugal, or to one of over 65 TAP destinations throughout Europe and Africa, you can enjoy a break in Lisbon or Porto for up to three nights at no additional airfare. The program also offers a variety of benefits, including exclusive discounts at hotels, complimentary wine at participating restaurants, free tours, shopping discounts and other perks to create a truly memorable trip.
TAP Portugal’s new branded fare structure offers customers more freedom when purchasing tickets throughout our entire network. So whether you fly at our Economy (Discount, Basic, Classic and Plus) or Business (Executive and Top Executive) level, we’re sure to have a flight and fare that meets your travel needs.
This new Toronto route will be served with newly reconfigured Airbus A330 aircraft, with 25 full-flat seats in Business Class and new slim-line seats in the Economy cabin, outfitted with the most advanced IFE systems, the Panasonic EX-3. TAP is also expanding and updating its entire long-haul fleet and has a firm order with Airbus for 53 new aircraft, including 14 A330-900neo, 15 A320neos and 24 A321neos.
With new aircraft and new routes, TAP Portugal is enjoying a new renaissance, doubling its number of North American travellers last year and winning major travel awards. Conde Nast Traveler called the TAP Stopover program one of the best offers of the year, and Global Traveler voted TAP “Best Airline in Europe” for the last six years. There’s no time like now to book travel to Portugal — whether it’s your main destination, or as a Stopover visit en route to Europe or Africa.
