The Portuguese capital is one of the main ports of entry to the Old Continent. And now it’s serviced by a new LATAM flight departing from São Paulo

 

Everything in a single app

The app ANA, of Lisbon Airport, is a good alternative to find important information in just one place: from hotel reservations to food offers in the terminal, including parking options. The app also offers exclusive discounts for select shops at the airport before boarding.

Panoramic views

Lisbon Airport is privileged. In addition to its proximity to the city center, landing there is a unique experience: when you’re approaching the runway, you have unparalleled views of the Tagus, Ponte Vasco da Gama, the old town – known as Alfama –, and the extremely beautiful Parque Eduardo VII, a green icon in the city.

 

Authentic flavors

Inspired by Portuguese markets, O Mercado is the perfect place for anyone who wants a last codfish dumpling or piece of the famous Lisbon chocolate cake before leaving. Open from 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., the market has traditional Portuguese dishes and a selection of pastéis de nata from Aloma, one of the most famous pastry shops in the city.

Direct connection

Opened in June 2012, the airport subway station easily connects with the Lisbon subway red line. The trip from Terminal 1 to Praça do Comércio, a central spot in the Portuguese capital, takes approximately 50 minutes. The station stands out for its architecture and artistic interventions by Antônio Moreira, one of the most famous Portuguese contemporary caricaturists.

 

4.5 miles [7 km] separate downtown Lisbon from the airport, which has two terminals. Wi-Fi is free to all the passengers.
