Portugal’s flagship airline TAP enjoyed its “best month ever” in July, carrying a record 1.4 million passengers – 21% more than the same month last year.

Said the company in a statement, this was due mostly to a 152,000 increase in the number of Europeans choosing TAP, with Spain (+42.8%), the UK (+30.7%) and Germany (+27.9%) among markets that grew the most.

The new route to Budapest also saw a 138% increase in the number of Czech and Hungarian passengers,

On a national level, flights to the Azores attracted 17,000 more people (a 74% increase on numbers for last year), and bookings too were up 3.3%, levelling out at 86.3% of all TAP’s seats.

Additional data shows 1.6 million more passengers travelled with TAP in the first half of this year than during the same period of 2016.
