The national airline company TAP Air Portugal is opening new routes with Morocco and Tunisia, all from Lisbon, as part of its post-pandemic recovery plan.
These are “four important tourist destinations which reflect the position of the company in North Africa”, underlines Christine Ourmières-Widener, delegate of TAP.
Regarding Morocco, the Portuguese airline is adding two destinations to the three already existing (Casablanca, Marrakech and Tangier) with the opening of the Lisbon-Agadir (Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and Lisbon-Oujda (Saturday and Sunday) routes.
Its new air links with Morocco and Tunisia (Monastir and Djerba) start a week after the Portuguese government confirmed that it is negotiating with Morocco the details of a sea route between the port of Portimão and Tangier.
“Discussions are continuing. There is the interest of the government of Morocco and the interest of our country”, recently declared the Portuguese Minister of the Economy, Pedro Siza Vieira, who avoided mentioning the date of the launch of this maritime new route.
