Stopover Program

If Portugal is your final destination, or if you are continuing to other TAP destinations travel in full luxury and book your flight in Executive Class. The spacious front of the cabin in TAP Air Portugal’s new A330neo is equipped with the new version of the Airspace cabin. This new concept was designed to meet TAP’s goal of offering the best product in the industry to its passengers. In addition to the new Airspace cabin interior, the A330neo also incorporates the latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 jet turbines and aerodynamic improvements. With its unbeatable economy, versatility, and reliability, the A330neo uses up to 14% less fuel per seat, making it the world’s most efficient wide-bodied aircraft.

 

 

Taste The Stars

In Executive Class, the carefully selected wine selection complements the Portuguese inspired dining offerings. From the first course forward I enjoyed Portuguese wines with each course, ending with a deep and rich Port served with a selection of hard and soft Portuguese cheeses. The welcoming service, while never rushed, was efficiently paced to allow for a quiet night flight to Lisbon and extended dining during my wine-tasting, movie watching day flight return. Under the direction of TAP’s cuisine consultant Vitor Sobral, The “Taste the Stars’ program will bring the flavors of Portuguese cuisine to in-flight meals with creations by Michelin-starred and acclaimed chefs including Henrique Sa Pessoa, Jose Avillez, Miguel Laffan, Rui Paula, Rui Silvestre, and New York-based Portuguese American chef George Mendes. These chefs, and a handful of rising stars, will make the dining options on TAP Air Portugal an exceptional experience.

Tap Air Portugal's Premium Lounge

To be honest my wine tasting started in TAP Air Portugal’s Premium Lounge at the Lisbon airport. The appealing array of Portuguese small-bites offered in this light filled, colorfully futuristic lounge could only be enjoyed with the flavors of local wines. While in the Premium Lounge, the trays of pastel de nata, the country’s famed egg tarts, made me nostalgic for my day of discovery, hill climbing and sightseeing in Lisbon, and my few days in the quaint and colorful seaside town of Cascais.

Cosmopolitan Luxury And Historical Charm

The Memmo Principle Real hotel, tucked into a Lisbon hillside and overlooking the city, is an exceptional five-star boutique hotel. Centered in charmingly trendy neighborhood this beacon of style attracts locals and guests to its cocktail bar and Café Principe Real Cafe where Chef Vasco Lello incorporates the influences of Portuguese cuisine throughout the world in his menus. The rooms and suites are crisp, precise and handsome, and service is top-notch. The Memmo Principle Real is designed and managed with a level of sophistication befitting the cosmopolitan and lively city of Lisbon.   I found more sophisticated, refined and energetic dining at the Farol Hotel in Cascais where the restaurants and cocktail lounge attracts connoisseurs of fine food, spirits and joviality. Perched on the rock lined Atlantic Coastline the Farol Hotel is an enclave of high style and graciously hip hospitality. See more on the UnnamedProject.com Farol Hotel Story.   While TAP Air Portugal can take you to great destinations in Europe, Africa, Brazil and beyond taking advantage of the airlines Stopover Program is a value added bonus that can provide an introduction to the many and diverse attraction that make Portugal so special.
