It was Icelandair who began the ingenious stopover scheme, allowing travelers to experience Iceland with a free lengthy layover on the island. Now TAP Portugal is hoping that a five-day stopover in Portugal will encourage travelers to use the airline and experience five days exploring Portugal.
The program, which is currently being expanded, has brought 70 thousand new tourists to Portugal, and has been elected by the American publication Condé Nast Traveler the best Stopover programme in the world.
rom September on, the Stopover Client will be able to create a multi-destination journey, which means it will be possible to travel from one destination and return from another, with Stopover in one of the locations offered by TAP.
Last February, TAP added new destinations to the Stopover programme, allowing travelers coming from any intercontinental flight, with Faro, Ponta Delgada, Terceira, Funchal and Porto Santo as destinations, to enjoy a stay in Lisbon or Porto, with no extra costs. This way, TAP allows all domestic destinations are available to whomever wishes to stopover in Lisbon or Porto.
TAP currently flies to 84 destinations in 34 countries worldwide, with a measure of 2500 flights per week. This means that, from the USA, Canada, and Brazil.
