TAP operates about 2,500 weekly flights in average, on a 63 Airbus aircraft fleet plus 17 aircraft operating in TAP Express livery, TAP new regional branded product, adding up to an 80 aircraft fleet.

Within the vast restructure program currently going across the company as the outcome of its privatisation process, TAP has announced, among other changes, its network restructure, the launch of new branded fares, its medium and long-haul fleet renewal program as of 2017, with the phase-in of 53 Airbus wide-body and single-aisle aircraft of the next generation: 14 A330- 900neo and 39 A320neo family, along with the retrofit of the fleet currently in operation and the launch of TAP Express, which replaces PGA in the regional network and will operate a new fleet of 8 ATR 72 and 9 Embraer 190.

Retaining the Portuguese character of the Company’s brand and quality service as the basic concept has been the main driver of TAP strategy. The company has been largely recognized and awarded nationally and internationally.
