TAP, the Portuguese national carrier, will expand its operations in Africa this summer, with the launch of a brand new service to Togo.
Effective 17 July 2017, the airline will operate four weekly flights from Lisbon to Lomé, the Togolese capital. This will mark the first connection between Portugal and Togo, and increases the number of destinations in TAP’s African network to 16, covering 11 different countries.
This forms part of a major expansion for TAP in Africa; also on 17 July the airline will start operating flights to Abidjan, the largest city in the Ivory Coast.
This summer, TAP’s overall capacity to the continent will increase by nearly 20% compared to the same period in 2016.
The flights between Lisbon and Lomé will be operated twice a week (Mondays and Fridays) using a 165-seat Airbus A320 aircraft. The route will operate as a triangular service, flying from Lisbon to Accra, the capital of Ghana, and then onwards to Lomé.
