Starting on July 2, 2011, TAP will launch four weekly flights to ACC aboard a A320. According to Amadeus, the schedule is:

TP 261 LIS 17:50 - ACC 21:55 Mo, Tu, Th, Sa
TP 262 ACC 23:45 - LIS 05:55 Mo, Tu, Th, Sa

This year, TAP is adding MIA, POA, six European destations, and BKO and St. Vincinte in Africa to its route network. This is an impressive expansion.

They're not adding any aircraft and I don't believe they're hiring additional crew, so it's really just maximizing ac utilization. They also dropped JNB and reduced frequencies to MPM. Last year they cut some European frequencies too. They are becoming more serious about taking advantage of their geographic position to go outside of their historicaly ethnic markets and that is a good thing.

Does anybody by chance know when/where ACC is bookable?

No, this information is incorrect. According to Amadeus, TAP flies to JNB twice a week.

Good move, primarily not fueled by O&D traffic, I presume.

Well, that still doesn't answer my question. How long has TAP been flying to Johannesburg? This must have been one of their "oldest" routes? Does anyone know?

If you had read the linked article about TP ending its JNB service, you'd know.
http://blogs.timeslive.co.za/wandere...a-as-tap-drops-johannebsurg-route/

"It’s a quiet end to a 45 years of history."

...

"Flights to Johannesburg began in the mid-60s, first using Lockheed Constellation piston-engined aircraft and then Boeing 707s, the Jet Age airliner that did for modern air travel what the DC-3 had done for commercial aviation in 1935."

Another late departure from ACC? The airport is just pandemonium at that hour. Between 2245 and 2345 there are departures to LHR, IAD, JNB, and FCO. And now LIS? They cannot handle all this movement.

My thoughts exactly, its funny how ACC can go from being a ghost town at certain times of the day to rivaling some major airports in terms of aircraft movements within a time frame.
But those departure times makes the arrival times perfect for the flights to also catch th morning connections at the destination.
How much extra capacity are the on going renovations at the airport going to add when all is done?
