TAP flights to Algiers start on 1 June at promotional rates
Thursday 13, May 2010
TAP is launching its new route to Algiers on 1 June, with rates from EUR 266 (taxes included). This promotion is valid for travel originating in the mainland (Lisbon, Porto and Faro), for the period from 1 June to 30 June.
The new TAP route will have three connections per week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, operated by Embraer aircraft with a capacity of 45 passengers. The Lisbon/Algiers flights leave at 3.45pm, arriving at Algeria's capital city at 6.05pm. The return flight, from Algiers, leaves at 6.50pm, arriving in Lisbon at 9.00pm.
Remember too that on 1 June, TAP is launching another destination, Marrakech, operating three flights per week, on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
With these new routes from June onwards, TAP will be servicing a network of 11 cities in nine African countries, operating a total of 63 weekly connections between Portugal and Africa. In Morocco, Marrakech joins Casablanca, another of the company's destinations, with 20 flights a week. In Cape Verde, TAP flies to Sal and Praia seven times a week each, just as it does to Dakar in Senegal.
Last year, TAP increased its Luanda operation to 10 flights a week. It also offers three flights a week in its joint Maputo/Johannesburg operation, as well as a once-a-week direct flight to the Mozambican capital. Lastly, the carrier also offers three flights a week to Bissau (four in the June to September period) and one to São Tomé.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
