Hi, I don't belief STP Airways actually operates any aircraft of their own. They only have 4 flights a week scheduled (1 LIS-TMS, 1 TMS-LIS, 1 TMS-LAD, 1 LAD-TMS) which are operated by a EuroAtlantic 757. I belief 8F is currently banned from operating in the EU, however, since EuroAtlantic operates their flights they are able to continue operating into LIS.

STP Airways has been banned from operating to the European Union as part of a ban that included all carriers from Sao Tome & Principe and that was related to story of Hewa Bora putting its B767-200ER on a STP AOC to try and get around the ban on Congo and the STP civil aviation authority allowing that to happen. After the country as such was banned, EuroAtlantic immediately transferred the aircraft back to their Portuguese certificate and started operating the aircraft on behalf of STP Airways.
