MIAMI – TAP Air Portugal (TP) announces temporary capacity reductions following the travel restrictions and the drop in passenger demand.

“We are working on the continuity of our business, confident that we will return soon to our usual pace of activity, always focusing on the future, sustainability and growth of TAP,” said the carrier’s CEO Antonoaldo Neves.

“We thank our employees for their commitment and sense of mission at a time as we all do our best to take care of our customers and of Portugal,” added Neves.

Regarding the flight cancellations, Portugal’s leading carrier invites customers to visit to obtain a full ticket voucher for the total amount, valid for one year to any destination.

Also, the airline asks passengers to visit its website or app to quickly be assisted as the airline’s Customer Service Center is highly demanded.
