TAP Portugal‘s recent business class keeps surprising us with great deals. From the UK, you can not only fly to Cancún but also to Sao Paulo in Brazil starting at just €1,318 (~£1,134). Similarly to that deal, you save around €200 if you spend at least 24 hours in Lisbon (or Porto) on the outbound flight to save on high British taxes. Without the stopover, you can still fly for €1,490 (~£1,282)
You can travel with the following options:
The calendar below shows all departure dates for flights without a stopover in Lisbon and a maximum of 28 days in Cancún. However, to book these flights at the cheaper price (with a stopover), you’d have to use the search box beneath it and enter the dates you found using the calendar. For the London-Rio flights, most dates have the stopover in Porto.
TAP mostly uses its Airbus A330neo aircraft for its flights to Brazil. The short-haul flights are operated by Airbus A320 family aircraft.
Not too long ago, TAP’s Executive Class was infamously subpar. By now, however, all planes have been equipped with new seats that can be converted into fully flat beds and offer quite a high comfort. The service is also said to be very friendly.
Search & Book
Together with the other TAP deals, this one will also expire on October 2, 2022. A 5-night (or a Saturday night) minimum stay applies, as well as a one-month maximum stay. Even though the travel period should be from September to June 30, 2023, you can only find flights from February 2023. You can find most dates in Mach 2023.
You can check round-trip and one-day stopover flights on Google Flights. However, it may be easier to use our calendar above to check dates and use them in the multi-city search box below. We recommend booking tickets through TAP’s website and it’s usually the cheapest.

Information & Tips for Sao Paulo
Sao Paulo is an important economic and cultural center in Brazil and at the same time the most populous city in the country with 11 million inhabitants and a metropolitan region of 20 million.
The city is comparatively easy to reach from Europe, and the major hub airports are served by numerous European and Brazilian airlines. Bargains are not as common as to Rio de Janeiro, but there are still good offers.
Best Time to Visit
The best time to visit Sao Paulo is between March and May and between October and November. At this time of year, the weather is warm, and precipitation is comparatively low.
From the airport to the city
You can get a taxi for about 23€-28€. Note that Guarulhos International Airport, which serves most international flights, is located pretty far outside the city and it can take between 45 minutes and 3 hours to get to the city center depending on traffic conditions!

Information & Tips for Brazil
Brazil is probably the country in South America that is most frequented by tourists. Whether it’s the carnival or the Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro or touring the Amazon, visitors will get their money’s worth here.
Traditionally, flights to South America and Brazil from Europe are quite expensive, but since a few years, there are increasingly cheap offers, especially with Iberia and TAP.
Best Time to Visit
Brazil is a vast country – so there is no such thing as an overall best travel time. It all depends on what you want to see. It is best to visit the cities of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo autumn and spring while the dry season fort the rainforest is from May to September.
Entry & Visa
EU citizens do not require a visa for stays of up to 90 days and can enter with a passport only. Note that, similar to the USA, that after your first stop in Brazil your luggage must be collected and brought through customs. Calculate accordingly when booking a connecting flight.
