The two carriers that are teaming up to bring this nice deal to you, are actually not known to be partners. But Virgin Atlantic and TAP Portugal are cooperating and selling discounted tickets for flights from Lisbon to Shanghai. Your round-trip can be purchased at prices starting at €344.
The price includes a full onboard service as well as checked luggage. Availability is decent starting from October all through to May 2020. Unfortunately, winter holidays seem to be blackout dates.
Your trip will include one layover in London. The short-haul flight will be operated by TAP or, in some cases, by British Airways. During the long-haul connecting you’ll be on board of a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, tickets will only be sold until September 26th. So there’s not too much time left if you’re interested in this deal. The offer is valid for trips commencing between now and June 25th. Although availability stops in early June.
The Saturday night rule is the requirement for your minimum stay while you could spend up to 12 months in Shanghai and still benefit from this low fare.
Google Flights (instructions) will display all connections. Use the dates you found to compare prices via our Travel Dealz flights search or book directly with the carrier. Please note that you might have to call Virgin Atlantic to book your flights.
Tickets for short-haul segments will be issued in booking class O (British Airways) or E (TAP). The connections from Europe to Shangai will be in O (Virgin Atlantic). While the flights within Europe won’t earn you too many miles, at least the flight with Virgin Atlantic could get you a 50% earning rates with some of the carrier’s partner airlines.
Information & Tips for Shanghai
Shanghai is the most important financial and commercial center of China. But not only business travelers are welcome here. Also, regular tourists can get there money’s worth. And this is great because the city is connected to many major airports and therfor we’ll often present you with good deals for flights to Shanghai.
Best Time to Visit
Since Shanghai is located in a subtropical climate zone, spring and autumn are the best travel times thanks to moderate temperatures and a few rainy days. April, May, September, and October are particularly suitable for a visit to the Chinese city thanks to the low rainfall and humidity.
From the airport to the city
Shanghai Pudong Airport is located 40km east of the city center. Probably the fastest and most exciting method is the Maglev. The magnetic levitation train takes only 7 minutes, and with costs of around 5€ it is also a rather inexpensive (and of course faster!) alternative to a taxi, which would cost about 20€.
