TAP Portugal is the Portuguese airline market leader and member of Star Alliance since March 2005. The company was elected as World’s Leading Airline to Africa and South America and Europe’s Best Airline in 2013.

But the future doesn’t lie in the glories of the past. Through TAP Creative Launch, Making Ideas Fly, the airline is celebrating the past, but is mostly looking for innovative business ideas in the tourism and air transportation fields, heading to the future.

The applications for the program will open only in January. After the first presentation of the ideas and projects, 7 finalists will be selected. Then, entrepreneurs will be supported in the development of the idea, having the possibility of being financed by TAP or any of its partners.

While no more information is available and the applications are not open, you can subscribe to their newsletter to keep updated on the news.

It seems that ideas are about to fly…
