Beginning next summer, TAP will have 2 new air routes to the USA: Boston and New York.
The new daily service to Boston will begin on June 11 and the New York (JFK) service will open on the 1st of July.
Besides these 2 new United States destinations, TAP is also operates flights to Miami and Newark.
This summer, TAP is also increasing its Miami offering to one daily flight. As for Newark, TAP will be offering daily flights from Lisbon, and 2 weekly flights departing from Porto.
In total, TAP is increasing its offer to 30 weekly flights between Portugal and the USA.
In order to streamline its USA market expansion, TAP will add two Airbus A330 airplanes to its long-haul fleet, increasing it to 20 aircraft.
After being fully upgraded with new chairs, entertainment systems, galleys and lighting, these aircraft will be integrated into the most recent generation of this type of airplane.
The airplanes will have a 271 passenger capacity- 20 in Business class, 104 in Economy Plus class and 147 in Economy class - and will anticipate conversion of TAP's entire current A330-200 fleet to this new configuration, a process that will begin during the first semester of 2017.
