Banjul, the Capital of The Gambia becomes another new destination for TAP

The national carrier of Portugal, TAP has now started flying to Banjul, capital of The Gambia, introducing a regular service operating up to three times a week from its Lisbon hub.

Flights between Lisbon and Banjul will use Airbus A320 aircraft, departing from Lisbon at 8:55 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and arriving in Banjul at 12:10 a.m. the next day. The flights will then leave Banjul at 1:05 a.m. (on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays), landing at Lisbon’s Humberto Delgado airport at 6:05 a.m. (all times local).

The beach, nature and adventure supply classic Banjul imagery, giving this African city a true artist’s palette of colours: markets full of life and colour contrast with the beaches’ white sand and the lush natural green that characterises Banjul. On a cruise along the Gambia River, which crosses the country, hippos, monkeys and more than 500 bird species may be observed.   

TAP flies to the following destinations in Africa: Morocco (Marrakesh, Casablanca, Tangier and Fez), Cape Verde (Sal, Praia, S. Vicente and Boa Vista), Senegal (Dakar), Guinea-Bissau (Bissau), Ivory Coast (Abidjan), Ghana (Accra), S. Tomé and Príncipe (S. Tomé), Angola (Luanda), Mozambique (Maputo), Conakry (Guinea) and Banjul (The Gambia), a total of 11 countries and 17 cities.

TAP carried more than 1.1 million passengers on its African routes in 2018, an increase of 11.3% compared to the previous year. With the new 2019 destinations, the Company will maintain its growth in Africa.

Look out for some special offer fares each weekend in November,  the carrier is offering 15% off certain routes from Friday to Sunday.  Some destinations the airline has already features include: Barcelona, Budapest, Naples and Tenerife.   

For the whole of November, TAP will be offering 15% off weekend flights to selected destinations.
