Lisbon Airport Explored: Eveything You Need to Know About Travelling to Lisbon Airport

If you are travelling to Lisbon Aiport then this guide is indispensable. Packed full of all the information you need to know from taxis fares to car hire through to restaurants and First Aid facilities, you shouldn´t leave home without reading it!

Lisbon is one of those amazing places that manages to seamlessly blend together centuries of tradition with the energy and dynamism of the new. From ancient monuments to winding cobbled streets and restored palaces, all the way through to Art Nouveau cafés, fabulous restaurants and exciting nightlife, the Portugeese capital has it all and can be easily reached via Lisbon Portela Airport, just 7km away.   Last year a huge investment in the airport, which dealt with in excess of 13 million passengers, saw the services there vastly modernised and a second terminal opened to cater to domestic flights only. In fact visitors to Lisbon Airport are ridiculously spoilt for choice when it comes to extracurricular facilities, whether it´s to indulge in some retail therapy or relax with a drink.   Most of the shops are open between 07.00am and 23.00pm and although there is the usual abundance of duty free, book and convenience stores, there is also an astonishing array of fashion and accessory outlets including Lacoste, the Sunglass Hut and a couple of jewellers. For those that want to take a flavour of Portugal back home with them, there are also two delicatessens.   Once you have shopped-til-you-drop and are in need of some serious refuelling, there are a choice of either self-service or waiter service restaurants. These vary between the culturally apt, such as Passarola restaurant, to the culturally familliar, in the form of McDonalds and Pizza Hut. There is even a Harrods Knightsbridge coffee and snack bar for those that are truly homesick for Blighty. For lighter refreshment there are a selection of cafes and bars scattered around the departures area mainly, although there is an Expresso Café and Delta Café in arrivals.   Getting to and from the airport is the biggest priority for many and to really take advantage of everything that this amazing city has to offer it is best to organise a Lisbon Airport Car Hire. There are 7 companies in total that offer car rental Lisbon Airport, but Auto Jardim, located within the terminal, is the most convenient for those travelling with children, the in-firmed or elderly. The other 6 - Alamo, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt - all provide cars that are wellmaintained and generally under 8 months old but check with individual agencies to find out what else is included in the quoted price.   Another option is to get a Lisbon Airport Transfer. By booking in advance it ensures a driver is there to meet you in arrivals and take you straight to your transportation. This avoids any hanging about which is often the case when relying on other means of transport such as a taxi, which have stands located outside both the arrivals and departure halls.   There is no train station but there are several bus routes that take in the airport. These go to a variety of destinations including metro stations stops, the city centre and Oriente Station, a main railway station from where national and international trains can be caught. Bus fares currently are €1.30 for a single trip.   For further information on Lisbon Airport including arrivals and departures, bus timetables, car hire quotes, parkingScience Articles, weather and much more at the Lisbon Airport Guide.
