The initial routing was via SN
's hub at Brussels, because Sabena was a commercial partner to that routing so initial routing was LIS
, but didn't meet the expectations of both airlines (TAP and Sabena).
TAP changed the routing to LIS
, hoping to get more traffic from the more popular Europe-Bangkok (BKK
) flights. better, but didn't meet the expectations of TAP (profits).
TAP re-routed the operations as LIS
, final routing, with a good Load of 84%.
was a not a "Former" TAP routing, was a government Routing, and TAP suffered from that.
The routing starts with 30% load factor, when thy dropped, the Load factor are 84%, they dropped the Route after Swissair (at that time, a TAP partner and potencial owner) imposition, SR
fly daily to Hong Kong, and do not want TAP flight to MFM
TAP fly to MFM
from 96 to 99.
Tree final notes:
First the Flight was not needed, they start them, then the Flights starts to get some success, they dropped.
Its a shame to Portugal don't have a link to it's colony.
Macau was as the first economic Region in 2004.
