TAP launches EconomyXtra / Total flexibility for customers in choosing the on-board service
Starting with the October 27 2019, TAP Air Portugal offers its customers a new experience on board its mid-range aircraft. In addition to the two traditional transport classes, Economy and Business Class, TAP is launching EconomyXtra, a new way to travel in the Economy cab.
Customers can now choose from the three different experiences on board, the one that will best suit their preferences or needs: • Executive (Business Class cabin) • EconomyXtra (Economy Class cabin, front row) • Economy (Economy Class cabin , standard rows).
TAP customers, with plane tickets at Classic or Plus rates and TAP Miles & Go loyalty cards at Gold and Navigator level, are automatically differentiated and benefit from the superior experience offered by EconomyXtra.
TAP launches EconomyXtra
Customers traveling with Basic or Discount rates can purchase all the benefits of EconomyXtra at the time of booking or at a later date. The price of this additional service varies by route. For example, for the Budapest - Lisbon TAP flight, passengers who initially opt for the Discount or Basic fare can later add the EconomyXtra service, paying an additional 28 Euro / sense fee.
We remind that all Economy Class TAP fares departing from Bucharest (indirect route to Lisbon) start from the Classic type, so passengers who bought TAP Air Portugal tickets will automatically benefit from EconomyXtra service on TAP-operated route flights.
Seven reasons to choose EconomyXtra
Seven reasons to choose EconomyXtra: 1. Extra legroom; 2. Free access to the front rows and seat choice; 3. Relaxing and more spacious chair; 4. Adjustable headrest; 5. Electric and USB connection in place; 6. Tablet support; 7. Tables and drinks (tables improved compared to current ones).
TAP continues to offer all passengers, traveling in Economy class, the free catering service based on the ticket purchased, but differentiated for the two categories, ExconomyXtra or Economy simple. Differences can be from a snack to a full meal, as well as a unique beverage service, including quality Portuguese wines.
As for the satisfaction of its passengers traveling on medium distances, such as intra-European ones, the company bets on a different service experience, depending on the cabin configuration and the fare purchased.
