After an absence of over 20 years, TAP Portugal will once again be flying out of Toronto. The carrier will launch its new service on June 10, offering 5 weekly flights between Toronto and Lisbon using A330 equipment, reports Press Today’s Bob Mowat.
Carlos Paneiro, vice-president sales for North and Central America, was in Toronto last night to celebrate the imminent arrival of TAP here and to brief a select group of travel trade types on the new and revitalized airline and what it has to offer.
A member of Star Alliance, with the addition of Toronto, TAP will now have 5 North American gateways with the others including Boston, Newark, New York JFK and Miami.
The carrier serves 84 destinations in 34 countries using a fleet of 80 aircraft.
During last night’s Toronto event, TAP Portugal introduced its new district sales manager Canada, Liliana Vieira.

Bottom line – stay tuned as you’ll be hearing lots more from TAP in the next couple of months and beyond.
