TAP Portugal has launched a daily service from Lisbon to New York JFK airport.

The new route, which is served by an Airbus A330, joins a Boston service launched last month and adds to TAP Portugal’s current US routes to Newark airport and Miami.

The airline has recently signed a codeshare agreement with JetBlue Airways, opening up routes to 34 US destinations with connections through JetBlue’s operations at JFK and Boston Logan.

TAP Portugal now offers customers on the Boston and JFK route a new executive class cabin with 20 full-flat seats from Stelia Solstys, plus new slim-line Zim EC01 seats in other cabins.

From JFK, flights depart every day at 2330, arriving in Lisbon at 1130 the next day. Return flights depart Lisbon at 1700, arriving in JFK at 2000.
