Although InsideFlyer UK has written about TAP Portugal less than it perhaps deserves, savvy Star Alliance mileage runners are well aware of the airline’s cheap Business Class fares to North America.
And between now and 1 September, 2019, you can take an extra 10% off these already low fares. All you need is this promotion code – TAP10FLY0109.
How Do I find the Cheapest TAP Fares?
Some of the best fares departing the United Kingdom involve a stopover of a day or two in Lisbon or Porto. Depending on your perspective, this is either a great opportunity for a multi-stop holiday, OR an inconvenience that scuppers the whole thing.
If you aren’t quite so keen on stopping over in Portugal, you can also find cheap Business Class fares by positioning to places such as Dublin, Oslo or Copenhagen. Sometimes, but not always, you can pick up a cheap Business Class fare that doesn’t require an overnight stay in Lisbon.
I recommend using Google Flights to play around with dates and origin/destination combinations…
Where do TAP Portugal Fly?
The airline has been buying brand new planes to back its expansion (trying to shed the joke that TAP stands for Take Another Plane or Take A Parachute). You can now fly from Lisbon to:
- New York JFK
- San Francisco
- Washington DC
How Does the Voucher Code Work?
When booking on the TAP Portugal website, you simply click on “I have a promotion or a congress code”:
Unfortunately, you will only receive a 10% discount on the base fare component. (which is why it makes most sense for Business Class fares)
How Can I Earn Miles?
The advantage of these TAP Portugal fares is that they typically book into “Z” fare class, which can earn you 125-200% mileage credit, depending on your preferred Star Alliance programme. (you most certainly do NOT need to become a member of TAP’s scheme)
The Bottom Line
If you fancy a multi-stop holiday, and want to earn a large number of Star Alliance miles whilst flying in Business Class, you have until 1 September to take advantage of an added 10% discount from TAP Portugal…
