Safe enough? Of course. If it wasn't safe it would not be allowed to fly.

flown TAP recently from Bordeaux - Lisbon and Lisbon - Zurich, pleasant flight, nice crews, on time, no issue. They are member of Star Alliance so not surprised to see code share with United.

Good airline. Recently flew LIS - AMS and they still have free checked bag allowance and they even served up a meal on the flight.

They are the national airline of Portugal so that's like saying, KLM, are they safe?

It's Portugal's national airline. All airlines based in the EU have to conform to the same safety standards, set by a Europe-wide body called EASA. This is the same principle that applies in the US, where all the airlines have meet the safety standards of the FAA.

The two safety bodies work closely together, and need to since most new aircraft are designed and built in either the USA or the EU.

So the OP's question is really very similar to a European asking if United is safe since TAP has it as a codeshare...
