official source of TAP confirmed to Lusa that the recruitment of new drivers - without a set number - aims to address the need for renewal of the cadres, but also "has a lot to do with the company's growth plans."

TAP will launch 11 new routes in 2017, of which seven are in Europe, three in Africa and one in North America, announced on 04 October the CEO, Fernando Pinto, in a meeting with workers to publicize the plans for the future of the carrier.
Fernando Pinto said that the launch of new routes, which should take place "in principle in the summer", is part of the growth strategy of the privatized carrier.

Next year, TAP aims to strengthen the operation in the autonomous regions, in Porto, Lisbon and Faro, "due to the growth of tourism in Portugal."

In the presentation to employees, the manager also mentioned the intention to relaunch routes in Brazil, which had a reduction in frequency motivated by political and economic instability that is the main market of TAP, which was also very impacted by the devaluation of the real.
According to Fernando Pinto, this enhanced TAP is only possible thanks to investment in fleet renewal through the interior of 48 aircraft, budgeted at 70 million euros, and the acquisition of aircraft.

Some contrevercy in the portuguese goverment.

The parliamentary group of the Socialist Party questioned the government over what it says is "discrimination on the grounds of age" by TAP, since "most of the recruitment competitions" of the air carrier determine a maximum candidate's age.
In a written question to the Minister of Planning and Infrastructure, Members of the Socialist Party, asked the Government to "consider it acceptable that a Portuguese flag carrier, mostly controlled by public capital, promote discrimination in access to employment on the basis of age."
The Socialists also interrogate the executive, led by the Socialist, the actual prime minister, Antonio Costa if "given or will give directions to the administration of TAP for the opening of the next recruitment process this situation is corrected and that the conditions of access to be reviewed."
It is that stress, "in addition to their obligation to serve the entire national territory in a balanced way, TAP Portugal has a special obligation to be a model in its performance, a regulator of good practice". The origin of the PS parliamentary group initiative is the fact that "most of TAP recruitment competitions" discriminate "access to jobs on the basis of age, putting as a condition a top candidate's age at job ". "The last tenders opened by TAP for Engineering Specialist Recruitment, to the area of ​​Maintenance and Engineering, stipulated as the maximum age for admission 30 years or 35 years in case of relevant professional experience," advances, still pointing another case in recruiting Cabin Cockpit (commissioners or flight attendants), where "TAP required that applicants for these jobs had between 21 and 26 years." "Examples follow one another and the Parliamentary Group of the Socialist Party received a number of complaints with their ads to different functions, not considering acceptable to exclude a wide range of the population," support the Members of the Socialist Party.

It won't stop them simply failing to invite older candidates though.

Very short time scale for interested candidates to present their resumes in Lisboa"personally" has been given. For anyone holding down a job in another country it is next to impossible to schedule a trip to Lisboa at the notice/in the time frame given . . . thereby favouring those they wish to select anyhow. . . . .

No existem concursos...
That is to say: No ongoing recruitment...

TAP might have removed the maximum age. It might even be that they might recruit someone over the previous age limit, just to pretend compliance with the new governmental wishes ... but strongly doubt it will happen

For the first time in TAP PORTUGAL history, a pilot with 52 years old was admitted . As the actual government banned the age limitation that was normal to have , as maximum 35 years sometimes 49 years old., this man was lucky.

This is an example for the industry !
