That'll be interesting as South Africa doesn't have many direct flights to Europe. London Amsterdam and Frankfurt i think are the routes.

Many years ago when I was a travel agent if you wanted a cheaper fare to South Africa, TAP was one of the best options from the UK, it would have been on their Tristars then. Another route was via Luxembourg. TAP have been adding to their African network of late.
Another new development by TAP is Lisbon to Beijing which is a code share with Capital Airlines, it gets in in July.

From 25 March TAP will start Porto to London City, 5 times per week. They will also add Porto to Milan, Barcelona and Ponta Delagada.
From June they will add four extra flights from Lisbon to Sao Paulo, plus one extra to Brasila, Belo Horizonte and Toronto.
TAP also plan to start flights next year between Lisbon and Nouachott, capital of Mauritania, which is awaiting approval.

TAP is continuing to do well, it carried over 1 million passengers in February that's a 17 % increase over the same period in 2017.
