After adding twice daily weekday flights from London City to Lisbon last October, TAP has announced the launch of a six times weekly service between London City Airport and Porto’s Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport.  This is well worth a look if you want to try somewhere new this year.

Starting on 25th March, the Embraer E190 will depart Porto at 12:05pm and return from LCY at 2:50pm.

TAP is a member of Star Alliance if you are considering earning and redemption options.

I got to spend a couple of days in Porto last Summer and highly recommend the city as a weekend destination. There is an InterContinental in Porto which has very good feedback, but I stayed in a lovely Airbnb.  The TAP website is here.

Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold.  This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.
