Cheap direct flights between Miami and Lisbon

From summer 2011, TAP will start direct flights between Miami and Lisbon. Miami will be the second North American destination to be served by TAP, also used as the main distribution passenger hub between Central America and the Caribbean and Europe. It is also a destination chosen by increasing numbers of Portuguese flyers and which will also contribute to increased traffic flows to Europe - potentially benefiting tourism in Portugal. Miami has a high traffic potential. With its primary catchment area covering both the cities of Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and its secondary area extending to the theme parks in Orlando, Fort Mayers and Tampa, Miami is also the main departure point for the Caribbean cruise industry, which attracts approximately 12 million people per year.

With the inauguration of this new connection TAP is hoping to increase the traffic flows between Miami and Europe, thereby consolidating the competitiveness of its hub in Lisbon and the traffic on its European routes. Also envisaged by TAP is an increase in passenger flow between Portugal and Latin America, founded on its partnerships with other members of the Star Alliance.
