On it you will find all the information you need, so that from the moment you arrive at the airport to when you board the aircraft your experience will be as comfortable as possible.
On your boarding pass you will find the following information:
- The departure time of your flight;
- The name of the terminal where you need to go;
- The number of your boarding gate – please bear in mind this can sometimes change, so keep an eye on the airport information screens to ensure you are in the right place;

We have simplified the boarding areas at the airports we operate from so you can board faster and more conveniently and in greater comfort.
On the aircraft, all the smaller personal accessories you carry with you, such as a ladies’ handbag or a personal computer, must be placed under the seat in front. This will ensure you will have all you need with you and will free up space for larger items in the overhead bins.
Passengers with Top Executive and Executive, and TAP Miles&Go Gold and Silver Clients will continue to have access to their own priority boarding area: Premium Boarding.
Don't be late. To guarantee the punctuality of your flight, we close the boarding gates 30 minutes before the departure time. Please make sure you are at the boarding gate before this time.

TAP informs its Passengers that the time necessary for the control of documentation at Portuguese airports, under the responsibility of the Immigration and Borders Service (SEF), can be over 30 minutes.
In order to avoid delays in flights or even non-attendance, TAP advises all Passengers with intercontinental and non-Schengen flights to check the waiting time at the SEF and to plan in advance the arrival at the counters of this service.
It is recommended that Passengers preferably use automatic control machines if they carry electronic identity documents.
