Country/Territory: Portugal


A wholly owned subsidiary of Portuguese flag carrier TAP Air Portugal, Portugália is a regional airline with its base at Lisbon Portela Airport and a secondary base at Porto Airport. The airline operates chartered service on behalf of its parent, mainly to domestic destinations and nearby international destinations. It previously served as a regional subsidiary, however, TAP Portugal replaced Portugália with TAP Express to harmonise the brand name. The new venture is part of a network and fleet restructure by TAP Portugal to deliver a consistent brand and product. TAP Express commenced in Mar-2016, and while all aircraft appear in Portugália's livery, all flights are operated using TAP Portugal flight numbers and are booked through TAP's website. For more information on the new operational strategy, follow CAPA's coverage on TAP Air Portugal and TAP Express.
