Porto From London City

Post by idj123 » 14:04 Fri 09 Mar 2018

Just received an e-mail from TAP announcing flights from London City Airport and it appears that a round trip next month will only set you back £78-that's so tempting!

14:50 out and 12:05 return. Very civilised.

Civilised is the word! Left the office at 1 and got the flight out fine. Nice breakfast at Quinta de la Rosa - pick up by Manuel at 9 with plenty of time to catch the flight back and in the office for just after 3.
