Want to visit Portugal?

Want to visit Portugal? In the last decade, Portugal became a very popular tourist destination. The reality is the country has lots to offer and not just the well known Algarvean beaches. There is so much to see in the country and a diversity of options that suit all tastes. Either you like a holiday at the beach or a more rural approach, there is always an option for you. British Airways is now adding to that variety of options on offer. From next summer, UK residents can add the Azores to their destinations.

Flights will start from July 2022

According to a British Airways press release,  the airline will be adding scheduled flights from London Heathrow to São Miguel and Terceira. These will be weekly flights that will operate on weekends. The flights to São Miguel will operate on Saturdays, from the 2nd of July until the 3rd of September and the flights to Terceira will operate on Sundays, from the 10th of July to the 28th of August.  The press release also mentions the flights have very flexible booking terms, so it’s always possible to reschedule should travel regulations change.

What is on offer

The Azores are a beautiful 9-island archipelago located in the North Atlantic. Each island has its own gems to be fund. If you are a food and wine lover, which most of us are, you will find amazing gastronomy and wines in the Azores. You must try the famous cozido da Lagoa das Furnas, which is a typical dish where different cuts of meat and vegetables are cooked underground, in the volcanic heat.

For adventure and nature lovers the possibilities are endless. The island’s natural beauty is something out of a dream. You have mountains, sea and the Lagoa das 7 Cidades, or Lake of the Seven Cities, situated in the Island of São Miguel. You will certainly be amazed by the beauty of the place and the pristine colour of the water. The friendly people will certainly welcome you with open arms and will make sure you have an unforgettable holiday.
