From Lisbon city centre locations there are several transport options available to reach the airport. A number of coach services stop at the main train station Oriente, from where they run to the airport and there are 3 different Aerobus lines covering city centre destinations and the airport, too.
Lisbon’s airport has its own metro train station and the Red Line offers connections from the city centre into the airport that take just 16 minutes to arrive. As the airport is located on the outskirts of the city, a taxi ride doesn’t take much more time and costs between EUR 10.00 to EUR 15.00 for a one-way journey.
Terminal 2 is the main terminal for departures and passengers should note that there are no parking facilities, but the Aerobus service from Cais do Sodré travels all the way to T2. Also, a free curb side shuttle transports passengers between T1 and T2 at regular intervals. EasyJet operates strictly from Terminal 2, as do Blue Air and Transavia airlines.
