Enjoy a free upgrade to Business Class

TAP Miles&Go is focused on offering the best experience to its Customers, especially to those who travel the most with TAP.

In this regard, Navigator Customers now have access to two free Upgrades to Business Class, per qualifying period.

How to enjoy this benefit:

  1. Book a TAP flight on any fare, except on the Discount fare.
  2. Request the Upgrade up to 12 hours before the trip, using the Manage your bookings.
  3. Obtain Upgrade confirmation at the boarding gate, subject to availability.

This benefit is exclusive to Navigator Customers who have a valid status at the time of the trip. Check below for all terms and conditions.

  2. From the date the free Upgrades are granted, they can be used for a maximum period of 12 months, according to the Customer's PMY (annual qualification/accumulation period).
  3. The offer of two Upgrades per annual qualification period is only valid for Customers who have obtained Navigator status on merit, that is, through Status Miles or segments flown with TAP. Customers who have obtained status by other means are excluded from access to this offer.
  4. The two free Upgrades are valid during the Customer's annual qualification period only and as long as the Customer holds the Navigator status, namely at the time of the trip.
  5. If the Customer renews the Navigator status, they will have access to this benefit again. However, Free Upgrades requirements do not carry over the annual qualification period and are not cumulative.
  6. Valid for flights operated by TAP. Codeshares are excluded. This service is not available on non-Business Class devices.
  7. Valid exclusively for cash bookings (priced ticket), continental and intercontinental flights, on all fares (brands), except Discount, excluding tickets issued with miles (Award Tickets).
  8. Miles will be credited according to the original booking fare.
  9. The ticket must be issued with the name that appears in the respective profile TAP Miles&Go and the TAP Miles&Go Customer Number must be added to booking.
  10. The request for free Upgrades is carried out exclusively online and using flytap.com, in the “Manage Booking” section (myb.flytap.com).

  17. If the free Upgrade is approved at the boarding gate, the Customer will have access to the Business Class meal. However, there may be situations where it is not available.
