The flights leave Lisbon on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 5:00 pm, arriving on the island at 9:20 pm, and then depart from Punta Cana at 10:50 pm, arriving in Lisbon at 10:20 am (local time). Tickets are on sale now. Tickets start at €399 return including taxes on the Company's website: https://www.flytap.com/en-pt/promo/punta-cana.

This is TAP's second air link to Central America opened this year after the Lisbon-Cancun route that started on 27 March. The opening of these routes bolsters the Company's competitiveness at its hub in Lisbon, which is an ideal link between Europe and the Americas.
The contrast between the white sand beaches and the intense blue of the Caribbean Sea that bathes Punta Cana make this the perfect destination for those who want to relax and contemplate idyllic landscapes. TAP's flights to this new destination will be operated by a state-of-the-art Airbus A330neo model, which offers passengers high-comfort travel, less noise and the most advanced technology, including a cutting-edge in-flight entertainment and connectivity system.
The flexibility policy TAP has offered its passengers over the past year means customers who buy tickets for this route up to 31 July 2021 can change their booking free of charge up to three days before departure, which will allow them to book and organise their trips with confidence. All the conditions for free booking alterations can be found at https://www.flytap.com/en-pt/special-conditions.
