While Brazilians wait for new options for direct flights to Africa, the Portuguese airline TAP announces two new destinations for the African continent. Flights between Lisbon and Conakry, capital of Guinea, begin operations last Wednesday (3). In October, the company will start flying to Banjul, the capital of The Gambia. The new routes can help those planning to make connections from Lisbon.
The connections between Lisbon and Conakry take place on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 19.25. On the opposite route, the flights leave the capital of Guinea on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays, at 05:05.
In addition to Conacry, the company also flies to Luanda (Angola), Maputo (Mozambique), S. Tomé (São Tomé and Príncipe), Bissau (Guinea Bissau), Praia, Sal, São Vicente and Boa Vista Marrakesh, Casablanca, Tangier and Fez (Morocco), Dakar (Senegal), Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Accra (Ghana) and Lomé (Togo).
The line for Banjul starts operating from October 26. Three weekly flights will also be offered from Humberto Delgado Airport, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Tickets for the first flights are already on sale.
+ In 2018, TAP transported about 1.1 million passengers on African routes, number 11.3% higher than the previous year.
