TAP Portugal resumes flights to Budapest Airport

TAP Portugal has taken off again from Budapest Airport after a 14-month break, marking the resumption of the Portuguese flag carrier’s link to Lisbon. Daily services to Portugal’s capital city recommenced on 2 July. At the launch, the airline confirmed that a six times weekly service will continue throughout winter 2017/18.

“We experienced a 5.9% increase in Portuguese tourists last year,” informs Jost Lammers, CEO, Budapest Airport. He added: “It’s a great moment for us to welcome back TAP Portugal into our portfolio as well as giving us the opportunity to offer our customers the carrier’s excellent onward connections to Morocco, Brazil, Cape Verde and the Azores.”
