TAP and Air One starts an agreement of code-share for flights inside Portugal and Italy, and with Spanair for flights betwen Portugal and Spain.
Both of code-shares have intention to cover a big number of airports in Italy and Spain starting in Portugal.
Quoting Richardw (Reply 3): I was thinking of the leisure traveller that may want to fly LON-LIS-MAD-LHR on TP and BD.
Is there really a significant market for such a routing ? I mean apart from aviation enthusiasts (read: A.nutters) ?
Apart from code-shares, such a routing can easiliy be booked on TP/BD on one ticket.

I know its a bit off topic, but do we have any insiders that might enlighten us as to future fleet acquisition by Tap Portugal. I know that their current fleet are being worked almost to the Max. With planned future expansion of its network, primarily into South America and Africa, they are bound to introduce new aircraft.
Has anyone heard of anything lately?
I'm curious about that also. 2/3 months ago I friend of mine that works for TAP mentioned to me that TAP Maintenance were waiting for 2 A330's from Swiss, meaning they were going to be part of TAP's fleet. But as nothing has happenned since then, I think it was just a rumour.
The 2 330's could be from Swiss but I've heard rumours that TAP is negociating with Airbus to replace some A310's with A330's and also buy or lease a/c from the A340 family.. and they are not the A343's...
