Please also check out our German version of the Azores reviews.
Famous for its “Azores high”, the archipelago lies in the Atlantic far off the coast of Portugal.
From Zurich, Air Portugal (TAP) takes you to Sao Miguel, the largest island in the Azores. With a stopover in Porto or Lisbon.
TAP offers an attractive Stop Over program, which makes the Azores holidays a wonderful combination with a stay in one of the two cities.
We take advantage of this offer and visit Porto in the north of Portugal for two days.
But of course Lisbon is always worth a visit, too!
From both Lisbon and Porto it is about 2.5 hours by plane to Ponta Delgada, the largest city in the Azores.
For frequent flyers TAP offers a special offer with up to 40% discount: The TAP Flight Pass can be used for domestic flights in Portugal (including island destinations), for flights between Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Portugal, and for flights between Portugal and destinations within Europe and Morocco.
The TAP Flight Pass can now be configured on the TAP Air Portugal website for up to 30 users per pass. This requires registration.
