TAP Air Portugal continues to expand its presence in Canada, adding new nonstop service between Montreal and Lisbon which complements the carrier’s existing Toronto-Lisbon flights.
Canada was recently included on the European Union’s list of nations approved for travel to Europe.
The new flights will operate three times weekly, with new Airbus A321LR aircraft, including Business, Economy and EconomyXtra classes of service.
The flights leave Lisbon on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 7:50 pm and arrive in Montreal at 10:35 pm.
In the opposite direction, they leave Montreal on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8:40 pm, arriving in Lisbon at 8:20 am the next day (all in local time).
Carlos Paneiro, TAP Air Portugal’s VP, Sales, for the Americas, said of the expanded service: “We’re excited to be growing in Canada again. Now we offer Lisbon nonstops from both Toronto and Montreal – and soon we will also add nonstop service from Toronto to Ponta Delgada in The Azores.”
As well, TAP is offering customers the reassurance of the “Book with Confidence” program, for new bookings made through August, to support Canadian travellers who might be unsure about their travel plans in the next few months.
TAP will offer a free re-booking for all new tickets booked by Aug. 31, for travel through Oct. 31.
While the change fee is waived, any fare difference is still due and changes must be made at least 21 days before departure.
TAP’s Toronto-Lisbon service will operate twice weekly in August, building to five times weekly in September.
