Portugal offers nowadays unique conditions in what concerns mobility, both internally, as well as around Europe. In a short time and in an easier and inexpensive way, a European investor can quickly travel to the main Portuguese cities, as well as inside the country; this is due not only to the country’s size, but also because of the strategic connections and better airport system now available.
The largest and most important airports are those serving Lisbon, Oporto and Faro in continental Portugal, Funchal in Madeira, and Ponta Delgada in the Azores, all providing direct connections to the major European destinations.
A large number of major airlines operate direct flights from these airports, and when that is not the case, they fly to Lisbon where connections to other destinations can be established.
TAP Air Portugal, the main Portuguese airline, has daily direct flights to the main European destinations, such as London, Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Dublin, Stockholm, Frankfurt, Roma, Hamburg or Helsinki. Aside TAP, many other companies fly to Portugal and from here back to Europe, with the major operators being: Iberia, British Airways, Sata and Air Europa.
Many low-cost operators are also already operating from the five main Portuguese airports, having even taken over one of Lisbon’s terminals. Ryanair, Easyjet, Transavia, Aerlingus, Vueling, Condor and Eurowings are some of the low-cost airlines operating inexpensive flights to Portugal, which despite their more restricted conditions are still well sought for their good cost-quality ratios.
