TAP Portugal (TP, Lisbon) is planning to readopt the name it abandoned on its rebranding in 2005. According to Expresso, the carrier will shortly resume using the TAP Air Portugal (TP, Lisbon) brand with the soon-to-be-delivered A330-300 CS-TOX (msn 1015) the first aircraft to feature the title.

A formal unveiling is expected with the aircraft's arrival in Europe on August 22.

Founded in 1945 as Transportes Aéreos Portugueses, the carrier was rebranded TAP Air Portugal (1979) in 1979 as part of a modernization programme. The name was dropped in favour of the abbreviated version TAP Portugal on its accession to Star Alliance in 2005.

TAP Portugal currently operates twenty-one A319-100s, twenty A320-200s, four A321-200s, fifteen A330-200s, three A330-300s, and four A340-300s on scheduled passenger services to ninety-three destinations in thirty-five destinations spanning Europe, North and South America, and Africa.
