Albatroz is the name of baptism of the first plane of PGA, which began its operation on 7 July 1990. This year, on 29 November, the Fokker made a very special flight, the TP1937, between Porto and Lisbon, which was attended by several guests connected to the history of this airplane and Portugália.
The Fokker 100 has been in the company for 26 years and is the last aircraft to operate with the image of PGA.
From the four cabin crew who had attended the inaugural company and this aircraft, three had a chance to say goodbye and to carry out their duties all together for the last time.
On board, in addition to the champagne and the classic portuguese custard pastries, it was offered a souvenir - a photograph of the baptism of the airplane that dates back to 1990 and a copy of one of the news that came out at the time of the beginning of the operation of PGA - to guests, to the crew and to all the passengers.
This was an historic day for the company that took the moment to leave a special thanks to all who have worked and helped to maintain the Albatroz, allowing it to be today the Fokker with more flight hours at the level of the world's fleet F100, having reached 65,453 hours in November of this year.
The fleet of PGA is now fully renewed, reflecting the name TAP Express in its fullness.
