Travel in the best Economy Class in Europe

Fly with TAP and experience what has been awarded as the best Economy Class in Europe by the US newspaper, USA Today.

What we highlight in our Economy Class:

Following the renewal of our fleet, we are at the forefront of excellence with our modern, spacious and comfortable airplanes.
Our design was created in partnership with Portuguese leading companies, using distinctive materials and Recaro chairs in all classes.

We also stand out for the space between chairs and the entertainment and connectivity system on board. Having been the first company in the world to provide free text messaging services via wifi to all passengers on intercontinental flights, we also offer a huge variety of films and TV shows on board, always on high-definition 12-inch screens.
