TAP Portugal is raising frequency on routes from London and Manchester to Madeira and Lisbon.

The carrier’s winter schedule from October 28 will see daily flights from Heathrow to Funchal as well as a daily service from Manchester to Lisbon.

The airline will offer a two-class service on both routes together with onward connections via the Portuguese capital to Africa and South America including ten destinations in Brazil.

“Through the addition of these services, TAP aims to strengthen and cultivate their network and presence within the UK market,” a spokeswoman said.
