Following the tradition of baptizing its aircraft with names of national figures with historical relevance, TAP baptized its first A321neo with the name Júlio Pomar, in honour of the Portuguese painter and sculptor. We invited the artist's son – Alexandre Pomar – to meet the airplane.
The A321neo Júlio Pomar is the second to arrive at TAP, of the 37 airplanes landing in the Airline until the end of next year. Altogether, until 2025, TAP will receive 71 new aircraft, thus fully renewing its fleet with more modern, comfortable, technologically advanced and efficient aircraft at around 15 percent, in terms of fuel consumption and reduction of CO2 emissions.
Júlio Pomar will fly next to other great names of culture and arts, such as Vieira da Silva, Amadeo de Souza Cardoso, Soares dos Reis, Bordalo Pinheiro, Sophia de Mello Breyner, Amália Rodrigues, among many others who were already part of the TAP’s fleet.
