ZAGREB, June 2, 2021 – TAP Air Portugal today commenced direct flights from Zagreb to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal.
The new route will operate three times a week – on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Departure from Zagreb will be at 13:25, and the scheduled arrival in Lisbon is at 15:50. Flights depart from Lisbon at 8:00 am with a scheduled arrival in Zagreb at 12:05 pm.
“We are extremely pleased to have opened a new route to Zagreb, which allows Croats to visit Portugal this summer. It also allows Portuguese to travel directly to Zagreb, the Croatian coast and Dubrovnik, instead of flying over other European cities. Finally, it further strengthens the position of Lisbon as the best European hub because flights to Zagreb are aligned with our extensive network of flights in America and Africa. The launch of this new line is also an important sign of recovery in the tourism and aviation sector. We strengthen our commitment by guaranteeing all passengers a clean and safe environment at all stages of the journey and a flexible ticket booking policy,” said Arik De, General Manager of the Revenue and Route Development Sector at TAP Air Portugal.
“We are pleased to see TAP Portugal in Zagreb after a five-year hiatus,” said Yavuz Aytis, route development manager at Zagreb International Airport. “This line will not only connect the two capitals – thanks to TAP Air Portugal’s extensive network in Lisbon, passengers will have access to the continents of America and Africa, as well as the Adriatic coast on domestic flights from Zagreb. The re-launch of the Zagreb-Lisbon line will further strengthen the position of Franjo Tudjman Airport as a “gateway” to Southeast Europe.”
TAP constantly monitors the development of the pandemic and its impacts on the aviation industry, and the list of destinations and flights available in the reservation system is adjusted according to needs. Further information on travel restrictions and conditions of entry into Portugal can be found at the link.
TAP has introduced even greater flexibility into its Book with Confidence policy. Users who book flights until July 31 can change their reservation free of charge up to three days before the flight. In this way, all passengers are offered greater flexibility and the opportunity to securely book and organise their trips.

Despite being aware of the fact that the aircraft environment is one of the safest and most sterile from the point of view of infectious diseases, thanks to the efficiency of the aircraft air filtration system, HEPA filters and cabin configuration, TAP has adapted its processes and implemented new and improved procedures to guarantee all passengers a clean and safe environment at every stage of the journey. The health and safety of all is a TAP priority.
TAP is a leading Portuguese airline and has been a member of the global aviation association Star Alliance since 2005. It has been in operation since 1945, and the centre of TAP is in Lisbon, a privileged access platform in Europe – at the crossroads with Africa, North, Central and South America – so the Portuguese airline is the leader among companies connecting Europe and Brazil.
