PGA Express was a Portuguese regional airline based in Cascais at Cascais Municipal Airport.[1] It was a subsidiary of Portugália (or PGA for short) and therefore also TAP Air Portugal and used to operate services to Spain in a franchise agreement with both of them.

On 21 March 2014, TAP Portugal announced it would buy two ATR 42-600 for Portugália to replace their two smaller Beechcraft 1900D operated by PGA Express.[2][3] However, White Airways now operates both ATRs on behalf of TAP Air Portugal instead of PGA Express[4] leaving PGA Express' current status unclear as it no longer maintains any flight operations.

Fleet[edit]

As of April 2015, the PGA Express does no longer operate any aircraft as both Beechcraft 1900D have been phased out while their replacement is not operated by PGA Express.
