The cancellations mainly affect destinations to Italy, Spain, and France and make up 4% of Tap Portugal’s capacity in March 2020 and 6% in April. The airline now predicts an unspecified impact on revenue. Furthermore, the airline is set to suspend non-vital investment and evaluate possible cost cuts.
