LATAM Airlines route to LIS from Sao Paulo Guarulhos – GRU
A new Lisbon connection from Sao Paulo was inaugurated on September 2nd.
Brazilian/Chilean LATAM Airlines goes into competition with the Portuguese flag carrier TAP Airlines in one of its most important Lisbon connections to Brazil.
Initially as of autumn 2018, LATAM Airlines will offer 5 flights per week from Lisbon Airport. With TAP Airlines offering up to 18 weekly flights, the nearly 8000 km distance between the Brazilian metropolis and the capital of Portugal has, perhaps, never had as many scheduled flights on offer.

Sao Paulo is an incredibly vibrant city with close to 13 million inhabitants. If including the suburbs, probably around 22 million people can be found in Sao Paulo. See more about Sao Paulo on the official VisitBrazil page.
