TAP lets you purchase Upgrades with innovative APP

Company launches product in partnership with North American firm SeatBoost.

TAP continues to innovate and extend its modernisation process to upgrades, offering Customers a new way of travelling. 
As of this Wednesday (23 October), getting an upgrade to Business Class will be even easier. Bidding for upgrades in the 24 hours before a flight will become possible through a real-time auction in partnership with SeatBoost, a North American software company which lets you buy more comfortable seats up to 60 minutes before departure.

The process is simple. Just download the free TAP and SeatBoost apps available for Android and IOS operating systems. Then simply open the Company’s app 24 hours before the flight, enter your flight details and bid directly through the SeatBoost app. The Customer with the highest bid will get their upgrade. The winner is notified directly via the app and automatically receives a new boarding pass. All they have to pay for is the upgrade.

Auctions are available for all TAP flights that offer Business class and are subject to seating availability. Each auction can be monitored live through the SeatBoost app. 
This is an innovative, ground-breaking product in Europe. TAP is the first European airline to let Customers upgrade to Business class seats 24 hours before flying, in real time, through SeatBoost, streamlining and improving the experience for all of the Company’s Customers.

More information regarding this new service is available at www.flytap.com.
In addition to this new feature, TAP also allows purchase of an upgrade 24 hours before the flight through the Contact Center, as well as via online bids up to 72 hours before flying, in cash or miles, through Plusgrade, available at www.flytap.com.
