Lisbon may be small compared to other European capitals, but it is home to Lisbon Portela (also known as Lisbon Airport), the largest Portuguese airport and best-equipped airport in Western Europe. As the main destination for flights to Portugal, Lisbon Portela serves over 15 million passengers every year from cities like Paris, London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Cancun, Toronto, Miami, Boston, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Moscow and Istanbul, among others.
Location 7 kilometers from the city centre, Lisbon Portela houses two terminals: Terminal 1 for all international flights, where you can find restaurants, shops and a duty-free, while Terminal 2 handles all domestic flights within Portugal. If you’re transferring between terminals, use the free shuttle bus that connects terminals 1 & 2.
Other facilities at Lisbon Airport include ATMs, meeting rooms, bureaux de change, and help desks for Arrivals and Departures. Disabled and baby care facilities are available on both terminals. Free public WIFI is only available for 30 minutes per 12-hour period, so make transportation arrangements before you board the plane.
Lisbon Airport is located in the center of the city, so you’d probably reach your hotel an hour or two after landing. Visitors can travel from the airport by one of five means of transport: by bus, via the metro, by rental car, by taxi or by bicycle.
