SATA continues its wager to live up to the expectations of Azoreans, by offering a set of promotional fares that are included in the “Last Minute” fare, which was launched at the beginning of January.
As of today, SATA will be offering a new rate called "Last Minute", valid for all the islands of the Azores, which is only available on routes operated by SATA International, between the Azores and the Portuguese mainland.
