Great start to a new thread!

Seems like a rather limited long haul fleet - is that sufficient to meet the needs of Portugal? Does TP benefit from any connecting passengers?

Well Tap Portugal is a member of Star Alliance, while Portugalia are a current associated member of Sky Team. Now that Tap has acquired Portugalia I would expect Portugalia to withdraw from Skyteam.

In regards to the fleet Tap has 13 long haul aircraft, with 5 new A330 on order from Airbus which should start to arrive in October 2007. Tap Portugal is also a launch customer for the A350 with 10 + ( 5 options).

It is also my understanding that Tap is looking to acquire 3x A332´s (PW) from Austrian Airlines, This way Tap will further expand it's longhaul fleet and destinations.

Quoting N774UA (Reply 5):
There is a Portugalia F100 at AMS. CS-TPB. It is in a paint shop. Will it get a new livery, since TAP is the new owner of the company, or will the colours remain the same?

It is my understanding that both Airlines will maintain their respective identities.

Well Hifly/Air Luxor is a rather hard case to keep track. Hifly currently only have 1 A333 which is in servie for the Australian Air Force as troop transport to Iraq and Afghanistan. In mid May Hifly is expected to take delivery of an A340-300, which is coming from Virgin Atlantic.

Well I was also surprised to read that. Hopefully Tap will look into renewing it's short/medium fleet in the not too distant future.

Hopefully replacing some of the older A320's with updated A320's or possibly even being a launch customer for a future A320E.

Interesting thread Wings! thumbsup 

For some reason... maybe due to work Smile i missed the news on TAP taking over Portugalia... although i was aware of the potential interest.

Are there any news on TP privatization?

LIS is unfortunately a constraint for TP ... very poor terminal building and airfield/ airspace constraints will at the end of the day be a constraint for at least the next 10 to 15 years!!  Sad... In my opinion LIS should remain as the main Lisbon airport and develop other (say Alverca, Montijo whatever) into a secondary gate ... and those airports are quite close to the city center (much closer then say Girona or Reus to Barcelona)

Any news on SATA Açores fleet plans?

From what I have read, various parties are interested in acquiring a stake in Tap Portugal. In regards to a time frame, I would expect that Tap will start negotiations as early as next year.

With the purchase of Portugalia, I would imagine that Tap will look to concentrate more activity from Porto (Oporto). This way Tap will make use of the modern facilities that Porto airport provides. I also agree with you opinion that it would be in Lisbon's best interest to open up another airfield to serve Low Cost Carriers (LCC).

NEWS UPDATE:

According to Mr Fernando Pinto, Tap is negotiating acquiring additional aircraft from both a European airline (Austrian Airlines?) and a North American Airline (Air Canada?) I would imagine that it would be for the A330/340. His main aim is for Tap to continue with expansion into North America, Brazil and Africa.

Sorry folks only in Portuguese:

Fernando Pinto disse que o crescimento da companhia far-se-á através dos Estados Unidos e, sobretudo, do Brasil e África, embora muito dependente de conseguir aviões de longo cruso disponíveis para o fazer.

Explicou que a TAP está em negociações com uma companhia europeia e outra da América do Norte para a aquisição de aviões para reforçar a frota de longo curso, uma vez que os A330 que chegarem em 2007 são para substituir os actuais A310.

Hi BuyantUkhaa,

Well according to www.airfleets.net Air Canada have the following Airbus widebody's in it's fleet.

A333 x 8
A343 x 9
A345 x 2


In regards to Air Transat they have the following:

A313 x 11
A332 x 3
A333 x1


I would imagine that Tap would be more inclined to be discussing acquiring from Austrian and Air Canada, as they are both Star Alliance members.

Quoting WINGS (Reply 18):

According to Transportes XXI they are due to get going in March 2007 using a 763.

It would be nice to see some expansion of TP direct services down here at FAO, but it seems unlikely. With TP's only direct flight (excluding LIS) out of FAO now changed to LGW (at 06.25) from LHR, TP has effectively handed over London to BA and the LCC's.

The leisure market out of FAO continues to grow, as FR's FAO GRO and FAO MAD services get under way, despite them now refering to us as Faro/Huelva on their website! (Huelva is 70mi / 115km from Faro!)

Unfortunately, I heard today that the long running rumour of (BA franchise) GB Airways closing its overseas offices is correct. After some 35 years of presence in FAO, GT will hand over to Groundforce at a date yet to be decided, and close their desk. Staff will have have the choice of joining Groundforce or leaving and being compensated by GT.

And that's about it from down here....

You need to put it in context. TP is still realing from many years of bad management. They now appear to be on the right path. LIS is operating at capacity in terms of the ability to handle large aircraft. They are currently increasing the space for remote bays but there really isn't much room to park aircraft. In addition, there are lots of options in terms of charter operationg to server the long haul market. Yes, TP as a fairly limited long-haul fleet, but they are slowly increasing it, as they can and when they can.

Hi Fly is a "spinoff" of Air Luxor, a result of Air Luxor going under.
Hi Fly is what the owners could salvage from the debacle that was Air Luxor.
They just offer limited charters, primarily for troop transport.

I've been wondering for how much longer they can continue to ignore BOS and YYZ. I would be surprised to see them increase service to NYC either. They once operated twice daily from NYC. YYZ-LIS-JNB and NYC-LIS-DKR could be very lucrative routes for TP.

I'm a little disapointed there there's still no talk of service to China or Japan. I think Brazil-China or Brazil-Japan with a stop in LIS/OPO could also be tremendously lucrative for TP. AC's A345's would fit like a glove on a route like GRU-LIS-NRT or GRU-LIS-PVG.
