Lisbon Airport Terminal 2
This is the terminal serviced by low-cost airlines, whereas international flights are based out of Terminal 1. However, travelers should not that when their flight arrives at Lisbon Airport, they will have to go through customs in Terminal 1 before retrieving their luggage from Terminal 2.
Getting between Terminal 1 and 2
Thankfully, the airport makes it very easy to travel between both terminals, so after a passenger using a Terminal 2 airline has made it through customs in Terminal 1, they can take a three-minute free shuttle bus to get to Terminal 2. Buses arrive roughly every 10 minutes to pick up passengers and the service operates starting at 3.30am and it ends the next day at 1.30am.
Services on offer at Terminal 2
Given the limited number of flights that operate in and out of Terminal 2, the number of services and other amenities on offer are far more restricted than in Terminal 1:
- Currency exchange facilities
- Free Wi-Fi
- Information kiosk
- Limited food, drink, and retail options
- Scales to weigh luggage
What you’ll find on Terminal 2’s single level
Unlike the two-level Terminal 1, Terminal 2 only has one level and therefore is much smaller. The area open to the public is on the left side of the terminal and includes the airline ticketing and check-in desks, as well as access to the security screening and flight gates.
Transfer to Terminal 1 for the Metro into Lisbon city center
If you are flying into Lisbon Airport for a vacation and you want to take the Metro train into the city center to your accommodation, you cannot board the train at Terminal 2. Instead, you should use the complementary shuttle bus that will take you to Terminal 1. Once you arrive at Terminal 1 you should simply follow the signs that will direct you to the Metro station.
