TAP Air Portugal will launch new nonstop service from Boston to Ponta Delgada in the Azores starting in the summer of 2020. They will also add new nonstop flights from Lisbon to Montreal and Maceió in northeast Brazil.
TAP Air Portugal Launching Boston to Azores Flight
TAP Air Portugal just announced two new routes to North American and one new route to Brazil. They confirmed the launch of the route between the Azores Islands, which is the capital of Ponta Delgada and Boston. These new flights will launch in the summer of 2020. The flights are all going to be operated using the new single-aisle Airbus A321LR aircraft.
In the press release TAP had this to say:
“TAP continues to invest heavily in the Americas and once again expands its network of transatlantic destinations with the launch of three new routes: Maceió, in Brazil; Montreal, Canada; and Lisbon-Ponta Delgada-Boston, in the United States, all starting next year. The Company’s three new connections reinforce TAP’s growth commitment in Brazilian and North Atlantic markets”
The first of the three new routes will be flights between Lisbon Portela Airport and Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. This route will be operated six times per week and it will represent TAP’s second destination in Canada, after Toronto. The official launch date is May 23, 2020.
The second of the new routes is from Lisbon Portela Airport to Zumbi dos Palmares International Airport. This route will have three weekly frequencies.
The third flight and the most interesting one is TAP’s decision to connect the Azores with Boston. This route will operate six times per week and the official launch date is June 4, 2020. This new route will be in direct competition with Azores Airlines. In addition to introducing these new routes, TAP will expand its US service with an addition of a second daily flight between JFK and Lisbon. They also plan on increasing numbers on routes to Newark, Chicago, Miami, and Washington.
