airBaltic and TAP reveal codeshare

The new agreement announced today will give Baltic passengers better access to other continents.

The Latvian airline airBaltic and Portugal’s national carrier TAP revealed this morning that they have concluded a codeshare agreement.

It will give passengers on the Latvian side better diversified options to travel within TAP’s vast network including Brazil, Portugal and Africa. Portuguese passengers, meanwhile, will get improved connectivity to the Baltics, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.

TAP will put its flight code TP on direct flights between Riga and Lisbon operated by airBaltic as well as via common gateways between TAP’s network and Riga.

TAP serves 83 destinations in 35 countries worldwide, and its hub in Lisbon is a European gateway at the crossroads of Africa and North, Central and South America, standing out in particular as the leading international carrier flying to Brazil.

Baltic connections
“TAP Air Portugal is already our 21st codeshare partner, thus we are further extending impressive portfolio of partner airlines that ensures smooth and seamless travel for airBaltic customers around the world,” said Martin Gauss, chief executive of airBaltic.

“airBaltic will sell flights between Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn and TAP Air Portugal’s domestic network via Lisbon, as well to Lisbon via common gateways, better connecting the Baltics to the world.”

Antonoaldo Neves, chief executive officer of TAP: “Our newest partnership with airBaltic will allow TAP Air Portugal customers to take advantage of new direct flights to Latvia and connecting services to the Baltic countries, thereby adding convenience and travel options to northern Europe, in complementarity with TAP direct services to Scandinavia and Finland.”
