As from today, it is possible for TAP customers to book flights to London City Airport, in London, where TAP will operate from October 29th with two daily flights from Monday to Friday and one daily flight on weekends.
TAP will then serve three airports in London, becoming the only airline to operate between Lisbon and this airport in London, located in the financial heart of the city.
TAP is thus reinforcing its presence in the United Kingdom, by operating to those considered the three preferential airports in London and by offering its passengers a wider choice of schedules and connections, and increasing its operation, frequency-wise, in 24 p.p.
The direct flights between Lisbon and London City will operate with the Embraer 190 aircraft, with seat capacity for 106 passengers, departing Lisbon at 6:50am and 4:45pm, and returning from London at 10am and 7:55pm, from Monday to Friday.
On weekends, the operation is daily. On Saturdays, departing Lisbon and 6:50am and London at 10am, and on Sundays, departing Lisbon at 4:45pm and London at 7:55pm.
On the first trimester of 2017, TAP has already registered an evolution of 20,3 per cent of the number of passengers carried between Lisbon and London, whereby this reinforcement represents the airline’s focus on a strategic market like United Kingdom, for companies and tourism. TAP will thus be able to take even more advantage of its Lisbon Hub to connect the UK to its intercontinental network, reinforcing its strategic position on business traffic.
