Following the demise of Swedish carrier City Airlines, Danish airline Sun Air, operating as a British Airways franchise partner, will take over the Manchester – Gothenburg service from the 27 August 2012 with 11 weekly return flights. And TAP is increasing flights.
In addition to being a commercial city, Gothenburg is also a very attractive tourist area as there is a rich cultural life and only a short distance to beautiful Swedish scenery.
The route will have a morning and evening departure weekdays and an evening departure on Sundays, which makes it practical for a day business trip. The service is operated by a 32-seat Dornier 328 Jet.
An airline clearly pleased with Manchester is TAP Portugal. The carrier began flying from Lisbon last year and currently is the only scheduled carrier operating on the route to the Portuguese capital with five flights per week in each direction.
TAP’s UK Sales Manager José Moreira said: “Having successfully launched our new service last summer, we are very happy with the results to date. We will have a daily flight this winter and intend to add further frequencies next summer to reflect the increased demand we are experiencing not only to Portugal but beyond to Brazil and Africa”. www.uk.sun-air.dk www.flytap.com
