A TAP Portugal vai começar a voar para Manaus e Belém, no norte do Brasil, a partir do início de Junho de 2014, aumentando assim para 12 o número de destinos servidos no Brasil, reforçando a sua posição de companhia aérea líder mundial na operação para o país.

A operação será iniciada com três frequências semanais, terça-feira, sexta-feira e domingo, e será realizada com voos entre Lisboa – Manaus – Belém – Lisboa, permitindo que a TAP entre na região norte do Brasil, onde ainda não estava presente, a qual possui um grande potencial turístico e uma oferta de voos internacionais reduzida.

Os voos da TAP partem de Lisboa (LIS-LPPT) às 9h30, chegam a Manaus (MAO-SBEG) às 13h40 e, uma hora depois, seguem para Belém (BEL-SBBE), onde aterrizam às 17h40. Às 19h10, partem de Belém, chegando a Lisboa às 6h45 do dia seguinte (horas locais).

A nova rota entre o norte do Brasil e a Europa irá permitir a liberação de lugares noutras rotas operadas pela TAP no Brasil que já apresentam alguma escassez de oferta devido à elevada procura.

Com a nova rota a companhia chegará a 12 cidades no Brasil em 2014.

TAP Portugal today announced the start of operations to Manaus and Belem, both cities in Northern Brazil, as of the beginning of June 2014. With the addition of these new destinations to its network, the company increases to 12 the number of gateways operated in Brazil and further strengthens its positioning as the world’s leading airline in operation to that key market in South America.

The operation is to be launched with three weekly frequencies – on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays – and flights will operate the route Lisbon – Manaus – Belem – Lisbon, thereby allowing TAP to enter for the first time into Northern Brazil, a region with great potential for tourism and where the offer of international flights is still very scarce.

Out of Portugal, flights will depart TAP Lisbon hub at 09h30 and arrive in Manaus at 13h40. After one hour turn-round time flights go on to Belem arriving there at 17h40. At 19h10 return flights depart Belem with arrival in Lisbon at 06h45 (following day).

The introduction of these new services will not only allow TAP to access and fly direct traffic between North Brazil and Europe, but also to increase the seat availability in other TAP operated routes in Brazil, which nowadays and due to the company’s high load-factors can hardly meet the increasing demand.

Currently, TAP operates direct flights to 10 gateways in Brazil: Fortaleza; Natal; Recife; Salvador; Brasilia; Belo Horizonte; Rio de Janeiro; Sao Paulo; Campinas and Porto Alegre, adding in the whole to 74 weekly frequencies operated in average. With the introduction of Manaus and Belem as new destinations, TAP will from now on cover all regions in the country, considerably reinforcing the reach of its network in Brazil.
