Travel in the Portuguese airline TAP in long-haul flights from Vigo is cheaper than doing it from the Port, writes this Tuesday, January 31, the Jornal de Notícias.
The publication fulfills that difference in the tariffs more low, is higher than 100 euros. TAP justifies the prices with the factors as numbers of flights, duration, and market prices and admitted the intention of capturing passengers motivated “solely by price.” But there are cases in which the value exceeds € 600.
The News is a simulated return flights to Boston, New York, Miami, Caracas, Rio de Janeiro and Maputo for the same dates and departure from Porto or Vigo. For the same dates, and always with a stopover in Lisbon, the conclusion remains: out of the Harbor is more expensive.
even so, the publication argues that the prices may lead the Portuguese to live further north in the country to embark in Spain. The TAP does not have data of how many may have already done this option and says that “the probability of this happening is very low”.
