The new route will bolster TAP's competitiveness at its hub in Lisbon as it provides privileged access between Central America and Europe. Cancun is one of the most popular Central American destinations TAP offers its European customers.
Cancun is perfect for people who want to relax on white sandy beaches lapped by the deep blue waters of the Caribbean. The more adventurous can explore the surrounding area and the amazing Riviera Maya with its Temple of Kukulcán pyramid and the ruins of Tulum along with many other attractions.
The flights on TAP's new route will use a state-of-the-art Airbus A330neo, which offers passengers a very quiet, comfortable journey and the most advanced technology, including the latest in-flight entertainment and connectivity system. Tickets are available from €500 return, all taxes included, or 29,000 miles (one-way) on the TAP Miles&Go frequent flyer programme at https://www.flytap.com/pt-pt/.
Tickets to and from Cancun purchased by 31 May, flying until 31 December 2021, can be changed for free. This offers all the airline's passengers more flexibility, allowing them to book and organise their journeys with confidence. All the information about how to change the bookings is available here.
The new TAP route had been announced for 2020 but its launch was postponed due to the pandemic and flights will now begin in March 2021. TAP constantly monitors the spread of the pandemic and its operational impacts. The list of routes and flights are adjusted whenever circumstances require.

Despite the fact that the on-board environment is one of the safest and most sterile from the point of view of contagious diseases because of the cabin configuration and effectiveness of the air filtration system with HEPA filters, TAP has changed some routines and implemented new and reinforced procedures to assure all passengers a Clean&Safe environment at every stage of the journey. Everybody's health and safety are a priority for TAP.
