For Munich, TAP operations will begin with a daily flight departing from Porto at 12:15 p.m. and arriving in the German city at 3:55 p.m.
This increase in routes from the Porto Airport allows TAP to operate 19 direct routes from Porto to airports in Europe, the United States and also Brazil, in a total of 288 weekly flights.
The new routes that TAP will inaugurate this year from Porto represent a 34% increase in direct connections from Porto to Europe compared to last year. Nevertheless, in 2018 the company had already increased the number of connections to Europe with the launch of operations to Barcelona, London (London City Airport), Milan and Ponta Delgada.
The opening of new routes this year is possible thanks to the reinforcement of aircraft that TAP is carrying out. The Company will receive 37 new aircraft by the end of this year and 71 by 2025. In North America, San Francisco, Washington and Chicago are the new long haul destinations for 2019 already on sale. Naples, Tenerife, Tel Aviv, Dublin and Basel are also new routes that TAP has already announced for 2019.
