Lisbon Portela Airport in Pictures

Lisbon Portela Airport, is an international airport in the city of Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. In Portuguese, it is called Aeroporto de Lisboa. The airport is the main international gateway to Portugal and a major European hub. It is one of the largest and best equipped airports in Western Europe for maintenance, navigation and air traffic control, and passenger service, having been nominated as Europe's Leading Airport for five consecutive years in the World Travel Awards. In 2013, the airport handled 16,024,955 passengers and 88,459 tones of cargo.


What started off with four runways has soon 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. 

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 13 million passengers in 2009. The strategic location of Lisbon Airport gives it an edge over other airports not only in Portugal but also in Europe at large.


Eating and Drinking

The airport contains several restaurants where one can grab a meal as they wait for their flight or to be picked up. These offer a wide range of meals catering for a wide range of people’s tastes. There are also snack bars where one can grab a quick snack. Cafes and fast food outlets can also be found in the departures area. 

Money and Finances

In both the departures and arrivals areas one can get bureau de change services in case one needs to change currency while going into or out of the country. Lisbon Airport also contains banking facilities with several ATMs also present within the facility.

I enjoyed this airport and its diversity of shops and restaurants. The best part is the kids corner, microwave and special kids items dispenser  I spent more than three hours around the airport without a minute to visit the lounge. If you're visiting Lisbon, now you know what to expect.
