TAP Air Portugal is honoured to have been chosen to carry out the Papal flight of His Holiness, Pope Francis, back to the Vatican, after his visit to Portugal as part of World Youth Day.
The choice of TAP to carry out the Papal flight back to Rome on 6th of August is particularly significant for the Company and represents an honour for all its professionals, who will, once again, seek to enhance the image of Portugal, with the welcome, friendliness and quality of service that characterise the national Company.
This is the second time that His Holiness Pope Francis has chosen TAP to fly back to Rome, after visiting our country. The first one was in May 2017, after His Holiness pastoral visit to Fátima.
Will be a remarkable and extremely prestigious flight for TAP, which has already had, throughout its more than 78 years of history serving Portugal, the distinction of transporting three other Popes on the occasion of their visits to our country, namely Pope Paul VI in 1967, Pope John Paul II on two trips, in 1982 and 1991, and Pope Benedict XVI in 2010.
