Five cities in Brazil will have another weekly flight to Lisbon next summer and TAP will then offer 82 connections a week to 12 Brazilian destinations, i.e. between Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro (14 flights a week), São Paulo (11), Belo Horizonte (7), Fortaleza (7), Recife (7), Salvador (7), Brasilia (7), Porto Alegre (6), Natal (4), Campinas (3), Belem/Manaus (3) and between Porto and Rio de Janeiro (3) and Sao Paulo (3).
At present TAP operates 13 flights a week to Rio de Janeiro, and this will rise to 14, which is the same as the provision of two daily Lisbon – Rio flights.
Salvador and Belo Horizonte are currently served by six flights a week, and next summer there will be daily flights (seven a week).
Demonstrating the latest success on the TAP Brazilian route network, Porto Alegre will have six instead of five flights to Lisbon each week. There will be four instead of three weekly flights to Natal.
With these extra flights, plus the already announced three flights a week on the Lisbon – Manaus – Belém route, TAP will be operating a total of 82 weekly flights between Portugal and 12 cities in Brazil from next summer. That is eight more than were operating this year.
