TAP launches new flights to Brazil

TAP Air Portugal has introduced a new route to Florianópolis, Brazil.

The three-weekly service from Lisbon to Florianópolis- Hercílio Luz International Airport will run from September 3 2024.

New flights, which will be serviced by the airline’s Airbus A330-200 aircraft, will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. TAP is currently the only airline to offer a direct connection from Europe.

Tickets for flights to Florianópolis are now available on flytap.com. Return fares start at £515, including taxes and charges.

Connections onto the airline’s UK and Ireland network are also available, ranging from London Heathrow and Gatwick to Manchester and Dublin.

TAP will now serve 12 cities in Brazil, which totals to 14 routes from a combination of Lisbon and Porto.

Luís Rodrigues, CEO at TAP, said: “The launch of the flight to the state of Santa Catarina has been under consideration for some time. For TAP, it is very important that we have been able to bring forward the launch of this new route to a time when, due to the state of calamity in Rio Grande do Sul and the closure of Porto Alegre airport, the south of Brazil needs it.

“An increase in supply to our biggest market, which is Brazil, is something we always want. With this new route, TAP reinforces its commitment to continue investing to be the European airline of choice for customers travelling to or from Brazil.”
