The Portuguese national airline will significantly expand its service to North and South America in the summer of 2023. This will provide a total of 17 additional flights during peak hours (June to September) compared to summer 2022, restoring service levels to pre-pandemic levels.
For the US, Tap offers 14 weekly flights to Boston (three more than the same period in 2022), five to Chicago (one more), ten to Miami (three more), five to San Francisco (one more in mid-summer ) and ten to Washington (two more). Overall, the airline will offer up to ten weekly flights to the US by mid-summer 2022. Flights to New York-JFK and Newark will continue.
