Latvian, Portuguese airlines in codeshare link-up

The Latvian airline airBaltic and the national airline of Portugal TAP Air Portugal have concluded a cooperation agreement, known as codeshare agreement which will enable airBaltic passengers more options to travel to destinations in Brazil, Portugal and Africa, the airlines said in an announcement.


Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “We are delighted to start codeshare flights with TAP Air Portugal, which is among the largest airlines in Europe... airBaltic will sell flights between Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn and TAP Air Portugal domestic network via Lisbon, as well to Lisbon via common gateways, better connecting Baltics to the world.”

“Our newest partnership with airBaltic will allow TAP Air Portugal customers to take advantage of new direct flights to Latvia and connecting services to the Baltic countries, thereby adding convenience and travel options to Northern Europe, in complementarity (sic) with TAP direct services to Scandinavia and Finland,” said Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer of TAP.

TAP Air Portugal serves 83 destinations in 35 countries worldwide while airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from its home base in Riga, Latvia.

In operation since 1945, TAP celebrated 70 years on March 14, 2015, and completed its privatization process in 2015, with the Atlantic Gateway Group now as new private shareholders of its share capital.
