The article is in Portuguese only and it's not very specific.
What it basically says is that TP has won the bid to acquire 3 Austrian A330's and that they have considered aquiring a 4th aircraft. The article doesn't specify what type of aircraft this would be (I'm assuming another A330?), or from whom thei would aquire the aircraft.

I would put my money on the forth A332 from OS (OE-LAP).
The a/c is on the market through ILFC and not OS as the first 3 - so TP needs to win 2 different bids and sign 2 seperate contracts.

But didn't TAP already aquire that A330 that was being leased to OS...I mean thats why they've been able to launch those extra flights from LIS to GRU and Luanda ???

Therefore it seems to rule out this A330 coming from OS... any chance it might be an A340 ?? Has Air Canada already disposed of its surplus Airbus models??

I read the German paper "Flug Revue", they say TP will get four additional A332 until May of this year. They already have 2 from Blue Wings, they'll get 3 from OS and the sixth? IIRC OS will send their fourth A332 to Swiss, so TP should get one from somewhere else.

In addition they will get five new A332s from Airbus, c/ns 877, 899, 904, 914, 930. Given that Airbus is already flying c/n 838 - the first of the new ones shouldn't be very far away from delivery.

This is an incorrect rumour.

Seems that they have where to use 3 planes....

ANAC grant the rights for TP fly to BSB effective April 3rd 2007. Additional flights to GIG and GRU were also authorized by ANAC.

TP will become the biggest foreign airline in Brazil with closer to 70 weekly flights. Even considering LAN Group (LA, LP and 3M) they will be ranked 1st !

Thats great news !!

So if they were to get this 4th plane where would it be deployed??
Further destinations in Brazil... Belo Horizonte/Belem perhaps?

I believe for now, they wont get more flights to Brazil. But CNF (Belo Horizonte) is on their future plans. But i believe they should try to consolidate BSB first.
