TAP Air Portugal has announced a new route between London City airport and Porto this spring.

The six times weekly service (no flight on Saturday) will launch on March 25, departing Porto’s Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport at 1205, landing into London at 1420, with the return leg leaving the capital at 1450 and arriving back into Porto at 1710.

The route will be served by the carrier’s Embraer E190 aircraft.

In October last year TAP added twice daily weekday flights between London City and Lisbon.

The airline is also reinstating services from Porto to Milan and Barcelona (both routes having been suspended in 2016), as well as new flights to Ponta Delgada in the Azores.

Outside of Porto the carrier is to launch a new route from Lisbon to Florence, with ten flights per week starting on June 10, and TAP will also boost long-haul services to Brazil and Canada from June, with four extra weekly flights to Sao Paulo , one additional service to Brasilia and Belo Horizonte, and one extra weekly frequency to Toronto.
