Lisbon Portela Airport is the largest and busiest airport in Portugal. By flying to Lisbon, tourists enjoy the advantage of making the most time saving trip to the capital of Portugal and, adding the fact the airport is located only about 6.5 kilometers from the center of the city, it becomes obvious that traveling by plane is the most efficient manner of getting to Lisbon.

The airport is the operation site of some 40 airline companies, of which Turkish Airlines, Lufthansa, Finnair, Easy Jet, Air France, Blue Air, British Airways and Brussels Airlines, just to cite a few examples, are the most resonant. All these companies link Lisbon to both European and non-European destinations, from Amsterdam and Paris to Tunis, Cairo and Tel Aviv, all the way to Moscow and Philadelphia.

The venue is fitted for the needs of people with reduced mobility, accommodating, at the same time, several bars and restaurants and offering banking and post office services. It also puts forward a rewarding range of shopping opportunities. Car rental services are also available at Lisbon Portela Airport, complementing the other existing alternatives in terms of airport transfer solutions.

Airport transfers from Lisbon Portela Airport to Lisbon

By bus

Carris, the main company which manages the public surface transport in Lisbon, also runs the bus transfers from Portela Airport to the city. There are two specialized services, namely, Aerobus (line 91) and Aeroshuttle (line 96), the former connecting the airport with the center of the city, and the latter with places like Gare do Oriente and Praca de Espanha. Tourists can also take into account buses no 745, 705, 208, 83, 44 and 22, but given the first two services are airport transfer means by design, meaning passengers are allowed to carry whatever amount of luggage, the regular buses can be resorted to only in case the luggage does not exceed the specified limits.

Tourists who, for whatever reason want to complicate their route, can get off the bus at Gare do Oriente or at Arreiro and continue their way to the center of the city by metro.

By taxi

Taking a taxi is, perhaps, the most time efficient manner of getting from the airport to Lisbon. The distance is quite short and the fares are fairly reasonable, which means taxis do fall in the range of reasonably priced means of transport. Taxi drivers are allowed to charge extra for additional luggage and pets.

There are two taxi ranks in the precincts of the airport, so vehicles are plentiful for tourists who want to enjoy the advantages of a quick airport transfer.
