LISBON AIRPORT (LIS)

Lisbon airport also known as Lisbon Humberto Delgado or Portela Airport, is the main international gateway to Portugal. Being one of the largest airports in Southern Europe, Lisbon Airport has two main runways and continues to expand. The Lisbon International Airport renamed in 2015 to the Humberto Delgado Airport after a famous Portuguese air force general and politician. Today is one of the largest airports in Southern Europe, with two large runways and ongoing expansion plans including new terminals that could further increase its amount of annual traffic.

Lisbon Airport
 
Lisbon Airport Opened on 15th October 1942. Started off with four runways each a kilometre long. It has since expanded and currently has sixteen jet ways. Portugal was a neutral country during World War II and therefore the airport was open to both Axis and Allied forces during this period. Since then Lisbon Airport has undergone upgrades on several occasions with major airlines using it over the years. In the years since the war, the airport has grown significantly and now serves more than 25 million people each year, including travelers visiting Portugal and the rest of Europe, as well as connecting flights, and non-travel commercial flights.
Lisbon Airport is located 7km north of the capital Lisbon. This strategic location makes it easy for you to get to your hotel without much of a hustle. The airport handled over 30 million passengers in 2019. The strategic location of Lisbon Airport gives it an edge over other airports not only in Portugal but also in Europe at large.

Lisbon Airport, is the busiest airport in Portugal with nearly 30 million passengers.

To get to Lisbon Town via taxi, from Lisbon Airport it takes about 20 min without traffic and will cost about 25 euro.

The airport is well equipped to ensure the stay of passengers within the airport is comfortable. Restaurants, duty free shops, left luggage and baby care facilities, and meeting rooms are just but a few of the facilities available at the airport. Lisbon Airport also contains facilities for use by disabled people. Getting from the Lisbon Airport to the city centre one has the option of using taxi or bus service.

Due to the short distance it is not much of a hustle whatever your preference. Lisbon Airport has encountered several recent changes due to the increase in passenger traffic. In order to handle the ever increasing passenger traffic a second terminal was completed in 2007. New boarding gates, air bridges and parking positions were put in place to aid in achieving this end.

LIS Terminals

The airport currently has two runways and terminals to handle its massive amount of traffic, but Portuguese airport operator ANA is said to be considering investing up to €400 million in building a third terminal. This facility would be dedicated to international flights, likely enabling the airport to process many more daily passengers.

Many of the shops and other facilities are located in Terminal 1, which is the much larger of the two terminals and is home to several major airlines. To handle the demands of the heavily-used terminal, it has more than 100 check-in desks and 29 gates for departures to destinations around the world. Terminal 2 is significantly smaller and devoted mostly to low-cost airlines such as EasyJet, with just 21 check-in desks and 15 departure gates.

International Connections

Lisbon serves multiple destinations around the world, from short-haul travel to other European countries including France and Germany, to longer-haul travel to other continents, including flights to the United States and elsewhere.
