TAP Portugal has revealed strong demand for its new Lisbon to Warsaw offering in the wake of the route’s launch.
According to the airline, 15,000 passengers have already booked a place on the route for flights between now and the end of the year.
The service will be operated five times a week, with flights to Warsaw from Lisbon departing on Thursdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Return flights to Lisbon from Warsaw will take off on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, all of which will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft.
Commenting on the impact of the new route on Warsaw Airport, Michal Marzec, general director of Polish Airports State Enterprise, said: "The start-up of Warsaw to Lisbon flights is the most important of the summer period, enabling an increase in the direct flights our airport offers and which already amount to more than 83 through 32 different airline companies."
TAP Portugal recently became the first airline to launch an International Air Transport Association-backed carbon offset programme on a worldwide scale.
