Capital of The Gambia is the Company’s new African destination.

TAP has now started flying to Banjul, capital of The Gambia, beginning a regular service that is expected to provide three flights per week departing from Lisbon.

Flights between Lisbon and Banjul will use Airbus A320 aircraft, departing from Lisbon at 8:55 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and arriving in Banjul at 12:10 a.m. the next day. The flights will then leave Banjul at 1:05 a.m. (on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays), landing at Lisbon’s Humberto Delgado airport at 6:05 a.m. (all times local).

The inaugural Lisbon-Banjul flight took place last Saturday.

The beach, nature and adventure supply classic Banjul imagery, giving this African city a true artist’s palette of colours: markets full of life and colour contrast with the beaches’ white sand and the lush natural green that characterises Banjul. On a cruise along the Gambia River, which crosses the country, hippos, monkeys and more than 500 bird species may be observed.  

Flights between Lisbon and Banjul are available from €244 (one way), with all taxes included, or for 23,500 miles (one way) for TAP Miles&Go Clients.

The launch of this new route further strengthens TAP’s service to Africa, adding one more country and one more capital to its network of destinations on the African continent.

TAP flies to the following destinations in Africa: Morocco (Marrakesh, Casablanca, Tangier and Fez), Cape Verde (Sal, Praia, S. Vicente and Boa Vista), Senegal (Dakar), Guinea-Bissau (Bissau), Ivory Coast (Abidjan), Ghana (Accra), S. Tomé and Príncipe (S. Tomé), Angola (Luanda), Mozambique (Maputo), Conakry (Guinea) and Banjul (The Gambia), a total of 11 countries and 17 cities.

TAP carried more than 1.1 million passengers on its African routes in 2018, an increase of 11.3% compared to the previous year. With the new 2019 destinations, the Company will maintain its growth in Africa.
