TAP Air Portugal has expanded its service plans to North America for the summer and plans to restore service to all but one of its gateway airports on the continent, according to the carrier.
Following its restart of service to North America earlier this month, TAP currently is operating service to Lisbon from Newark, Boston, Washington Dulles, Toronto, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago and Cancun as well as service between Newark and Porto. In July, service to many of those markets will increase, including:
- To Newark, an increase from 10 weekly flights to twice-daily service
- To Boston, an increase from six weekly flights to daily service
- To both Toronto and Washington, an increase from four weekly flights to daily service
- To Miami, an increase from three weekly flights to four weekly flights
- Between Newark and Porto, an increase from one weekly flight to two weekly flights
TAP also plans to restart service to Montreal in July with four weekly flights. That will leave New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport as the only airport in its pre-Covid-19 network not serviced by the airline.
The announced schedule is set to run through October, according to TAP. Portugal reopened its borders to non-essential travelers from the United States earlier this month provided that they submit a negative Covid-19 test upon arrival.
