I'm wondering about that: from Europe, many people want to go to northern Portugal, either VFR or tourists. Having direct flights to OPO gives TP an advantage over concurence in many airports that wouldn't have those flights (ie, any airport besides a few of the largest hubs in Europe) if they abandon this hub.

They're frequently after secondary markets where they can find a niche.
And, Isn't there a Portuguese population in the Cape region?
