TAP Air Portugal is resuming flights between Lisbon and Manaus, the capital of the state of Amazonia, in an operation with three weekly flights, with a stop in Belém, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The first flight is scheduled for November 4th.

With the return of this flight, the airline is now present in 13 capital cities and has 15 routes in Brazil (13 to Lisbon and two to Porto).

TAP had already flown to Manaus between 2014 and 2016. Tickets for the flights between Lisbon and Manaus are now available on flytap.com and at travel agencies, with promotional prices for return flights starting at 599 euros.

For Luís Rodrigues, CEO of TAP, “Brazil is strategic for TAP and the return of our flight to Manaus is another sign that we will continue to invest in the development of our operations in that country. We recently launched a new route to Florianópolis and we will end this year with at least 15 routes to Brazil, record numbers for the airline in our sister country.”

“Our aim is to bring more and more tourists to Brazil, not just from Portugal but from all over the world to which TAP flies, and to offer more than 60 destinations in Europe and Africa, which can also be flown by Brazilians via Lisbon and Porto. We want to continue to be the leading international airline in Brazil,” concludes the CEO of TAP Air Portugal.

During the summer, despite the temporary suspension of flights to Porto Alegre, TAP offers 95 weekly flights to Brazil, an average of 13 flights a day, departing from 13 Brazilian state capitals.
