The airline TAP Air Portugal has chosen the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro to celebrate the “Conexão TAP”, which connects Europe to Brazil. According to the Portuguese company, the choice of Rio de Janeiro has great symbolic meaning, because it is the first city to which TAP flew in 1961.
