TAP Air Portugal Reports Rising Passenger Traffic

TAP Air Portugal flew 100,000 more passengers in the first five months of 2019 than in the same period of the prior year, according to a press release from the airline.

The Portuguese flag carrier transported about 4.9 million passengers between January and May. The timing of Easter pushed substantial holiday-related traffic from March to April, driving this trend.

Rising passenger numbers parallel the Lisbon-based operator’s network expansion activities; this year it will launch new routes to Dublin, Tel Aviv, Basel, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, Naples, and Tenerife.
