TAP Air Portugal keeps re-building its intercontinental network as travel restrictions continue to ease, which, as far as the American continent is concerned, is still 24% down compared to February 2022 versus February 2020, prior to the outbreak of the pandemic without considering the supply of seats, and 20% down in terms of frequencies.
In this respect, today it was announced that the Portuguese airline will resume another service to South America, the one linking Lisbon to Porto Alegre (POA), which will mean flying again to all its Brazilian destinations.
According to our Brazilian media partner Aeroin, the operation will be carried out with Airbus A330-200 aircraft for 269 passengers, with the possibility of alternating with A330-900neo. Flights connecting the capital of Rio Grande do Sul with Lisbon will initially take off on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 7:05 p.m., arriving in Portugal almost eleven hours later.
