Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS)

- Humberto Delgado

Portela Airport, Portugal’s main international airport is quite centrally located, just North of the Northern end of central Lisbon, in the suburb of Olivais. The airport, that opened in 1942, is also called Humberto Delgado. It is the 18th busiest airport in Europe (29 million passengers annually) and very modern, one of the two terminals features an atrium with a food court. Terminal 2 opened only a few years ago. There are plans to expand Portela Airport, and build a second one in the suburb of Montijo.

We took a Brussels Airlines flight from Copenhagen via Brussels. The views during the inflight to Portela Airport was amazing, with views over central Lisbon, large stadiums, the two long bridges, river Tagus, beaches and the airport itself. It was very sunny this afternoon.
On the way home we flew with Swissair, and switched planes in Z├╝rich. The used the metro to transport us to the airport.
