Mexico's Cancun is TAP’s latest direct flight from Lisbon, starting in 2021. The connection between the two cities begins this Saturday 27 March with three flights a week. Departures leave Lisbon on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11:45 p.m. (local time) and arrival in Cancun at 4:00 a.m. the next day, except for the inaugural flight which will leave Lisbon at 10:45 p.m.and arrive at 4:10 a.m. the next morning. In the opposite direction, flights leave Cancun at 7:30 p.m. (local time), on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, arriving back in Lisbon at 10:30 a.m. the following day.

The new route will bolster TAP's competitiveness at its hub in Lisbon as it provides privileged access between Central America and Europe. Cancun is one of the most popular Central American destinations TAP offers its European customers.

Cancun is perfect for people who want to relax on white sandy beaches lapped by the deep blue waters of the Caribbean. The more adventurous can explore the surrounding area and the amazing Riviera Maya with its Temple of Kukulcán pyramid and the ruins of Tulum along with many other attractions.

The flights on TAP's new route will use a state-of-the-art Airbus A330neo, which offers passengers a very quiet, comfortable journey and the most advanced technology, including the latest in-flight entertainment and connectivity system. Tickets are available from €500 return, all taxes included, or 29,000 miles (one-way) on the TAP Miles&Go frequent flier programme at
