A ‘High Five’ to Dublin following five years of flights with TAP

Portuguese flag carrier TAP is celebrating five highly successful years of flying to Dublin this weekend.

March 31, 2019, marked the start of the resumption of its services, with the inaugural flight being operated by one of the airline’s Airbus A319s.

Now TAP flies up to 15 times a week between Dublin and Lisbon, offering a fast and frequent service between the Irish and Portuguese capitals.

Ricardo Dinis, TAP Air Portugal Country Manager for UK, Ireland and Nordics, said: “We are extremely pleased to be marking this major five-year milestone of flights between Dublin and Lisbon.

“Since our inaugural flight, demand has proved resilient and grown in popularity for both customers flying to Lisbon and travelling inbound to visit Dublin and explore Ireland’s beautiful countryside.

“With the summer season fast approaching, TAP continues to connect Ireland to our growing global network, offering unbeatable frequencies to South America where we offer more flights to Brazil than any other European airline.”

Garry McLean, Dublin Airport Managing Director, said: “It is wonderful to mark five years of travel between Dublin Airport and Lisbon with TAP.

“Lisbon is a beautiful city steeped in history and culture and this route is really popular with our passengers, bringing additional choice for those travelling between Dublin and Portugal. It also offers convenient onward connectivity to South America and other locations via TAP’s global network.”

Customers flying to Lisbon from Ireland with TAP can enjoy competitive fares starting from as little as €65, return, including all taxes and charges. TAP operates short-haul Airbus and Embraer aircraft between the Irish and Portuguese capitals.

Customers flying through Lisbon have access to the TAP’s Portugal Stopover Programme, allowing them to break their journey to explore and discover Portugal’s historic cities with no extra cost. The programme includes a 25% discount on all domestic flights, up to 50% off restaurants and experiences and up to 20% off hotels.

TAP flies to 83 destinations, including 11 in Brazil, some of which aren’t served by any other European carrier.

TAP also boasts a strong North American network with flights to New York, Washington, Chicago, Boston, Miami, San Francisco, Toronto and Montréal.

Boasting one of the youngest fleets in Europe with an average age of just nine years old, TAP operates a mix of short-haul and long-haul Airbus aircraft, from the state-of-the-art A330neo to the single-aisle A321LR, as well as operating a fleet of Embraer aircraft for short hops through its regional arm, TAP Express.
