Would you rather be siesta-ing in Spain this winter instead of shoveling snow off your driveway?

Of course you would, and TAP Air Portugal is back again to help with its revived unadvertised sale on flights to Europe. While nearly all of the airline's destinations are marked down its network in Spain is one that's worth paying attention to. TAP's robust route offerings in neighboring Spain make for smooth connections to cities that many other carriers don't reach.

Bigger cities like Madrid (MAD) and Barcelona (BCN) ring in the cheapest starting at $286 roundtrip, with all others falling in the $380 range from Boston, Miami, and NYC. Chicago and DC price a bit more at $440ish roundtrip, but that is still hundreds less than what other airlines are offering.

Travel Availability

Departure days vary slightly by route. In general, departures from the USA are available on select dates in November and early December, then again from mid-January 2020 onward. Flights departing JFK are mostly only for travel next year. The bulk of available seat inventory can be found in the winter of 2020.

Alternate Fares

One-way fares are available at an outstanding value on these routes and offer the chance for a free stopover in Portugal along the way!

By upgrading to the "basic fare" (usually $35 more each way), one checked bag will be included with your fare. Compare this upgrade to what it costs to check a bag on other carriers (usually $60 each way), and these TAP Portugal fares are a real steal if you travel with checked baggage.
