TAP Air Portugal has launched a generous promotion for the Black Friday weekend, running until next Tuesday.
The offer is an attractive 20% off all flights departing from the UK, including long haul flights with an aircraft change in Portugal, when you use the code FRIDAY21GBP.
The travel dates included in the offer are as follows:
- 16th January to 19th February
- 13th March to 31st March
- 26th April to 31st May
‘Discount’ and ‘Top Exec’ tickets are excluded. The discount is calculated on the base fare and carrier surcharges, excluding third party taxes and charges.
Bookings must be made before 30th November 2021. You can access the Black Friday promotion page here.
In terms of aircraft, TAP has recently taken delivery of a new fleet ofA320neo, A321neo and A330neo planes and now operates one of the youngest and therefore most environmentally friendly fleets in the world. It was the first airline to operate the long-haul Airbus A330neo – you can find out more about the TAP neo fleet here.
TAP is part of Star Alliance. You can credit the miles you earn with a TAP Portugal Black Friday purchase to Lufthansa Miles & More or any other Star Alliance frequent flyer programme, assuming you are not a member of TAP’s own scheme.
You may want to consider TAP’s loyalty scheme, ‘TAP Miles&Go’. It is offering new members the chance to win 3,000 miles. All new members will receive 200 miles when they sign up to TAP Miles&Go, but every 500th new member will receive an extra 3,000 miles.
TAP Miles&Go is running a status match too
TAP Miles&Go is still running a very attractive status match campaign that gives British Airways Executive Club Gold OR Silver member the opportunity to get Miles&Go Gold status. This means you will also automatically get Star Alliance Gold status. This gives you:
- Lounge access (Gold members often have access to higher quality lounges than other members, for example the Senator room in the Lufthansa Lounge in Heathrow Terminal 2)
- Fast track security and boarding
- Priority check-in
- Priority baggage handling (which often works, unlike on BA!)
- Extra baggage allowance
- Free First Class upgrades on all your Heathrow Express trips
The match isn’t free, but the cost of €99 to buy cheapest Club Miles&Go package should be easy to recoup.
For clarity, even Silver members of British Airways Executive Club will be given Gold status.
