Star Alliance carrier TAP Portugal is not only selling cheap flights to Montreal from Copenhagen but now also from Warsaw and Prague. Even if you pay €60 for a piece of luggage, it still remains a great price! You can even add a stopover in Lisbon of up to 5 days! This fare is only available in April and May 2021.
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s current immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
Please be aware, that TAP’s DISCOUNT fare cannot be canceled or changed – not even in light of the current coronavirus situation. If you wish to benefit from TAP’s flexibility policy, you’ll need to book the BASIC fare that includes luggage.
You would first fly to Lisbon, from where TAP would fly you to Montreal on an Airbus A321neo. Food & drinks are included.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.
Search & Book
The fare rules state absolutely no restrictions. The latest available dates we were able to find are in May 2021. You could use Google Flights to find available dates, but you could also use our availability calendar above, which will redirect you to TAP’s booking site.
The tickets are issued in booking class O. If you’re flying from Warsaw, you can expect the following mileage to be credited to your account:

Stopover in Lisbon
Adding a Stopover in Lisbon or Porto
If you book directly on TAP’s website, a pop-up window will automatically open. Its user-friendly interface asks you if and how long you’d like to stay in Portugal. This is by far the easiest way to make the most out of a trip with TAP to any destination of your choice. A stopover in Porto can be added the same way. The best thing – the price of your flight remains the same!
Information & Tips for Montreal
While Quebec City is the political capital of the province of Quebec, Montreal is the economic and cultural center. At the same time, it is the second largest city in Canada!
Flights to Montreal
Just like Toronto, Montreal is a pretty cheap destination for flights. Air Canada flies non-stop to Frankfurt/Main and Lufthansa flies non-stop from Munich to Montreal. In addition, there are many other connecting flights with stopovers in Europe or Toronto (mostly with Air Canada) as well as via the USA. Return flights for around 300€ (only hand luggage, checked luggage mostly 80-100€ surcharge) are a common sight. However, you should avoid the school holidays – especially the summer holidays! During this period, airfares quickly rise to over 500€ and reach highs of up to 1.000€ for a direct flight in economy class. Do not expect good deals during this time.
Best Time to Travel
The best times to visit Montreal are from March to May or from September to November. Thanks to comparatively mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine, these months are best suited for tourism. If you want to experience the Canadian winter you can also visit between December and February, but at this time you have to deal with weather restrictions.
From the Airport to the City Center
By taxi you pay a fare of $40CAD (approx. 27€) between the airport and the city centre. With the STM Airport Express (bus number 747) you pay $10CAD (approx. 6,70€) – the ticket is also valid on citywide public transit for 24 hours. The travel times by taxi as well as by bus depend strongly on the traffic and can take more than one hour during peak times.
