Practical information

Unlike other airports throughout Europe, the Lisbon Airport (Humberto Delgado International Airport) is located very close to center of the city. So you don't have to travel a long time after landing in the airport!

After arriving to the Airport

Perhaps the easiest way to get to the conference venue is to take the Metro. The red line, starting at the airport, will leave you < 500 m away from IST for €1.45 (single trip ticket), either you choose to exit at Alameda or Saldanha stations. With a little bit of planing, the rechargeable VIVA card (valid for both bus and metro) will let you travel freely around the city during your stay.

From the airport you can also take an Aerobus directly to the center of the city (line 91), available every 20 minutes from 7:00 to 21:00, or you can take the bus. Find out the routes and the prices and more practical tips here.

If you prefer you can take a Taxi. Charge wil be according to the meter and it's costs around €10 to get to the center of the city during the day and a little more at night.

Alternately, you can buy a taxi-voucher in the airport. This way you pay a fixed amount and you don't have to worry about arguing about the price. Depending the distance you want to cover, the price of the taxi-voucher varies between €15 and €30.

Smartphone App based services such as Uber, MyTaxy, Taxify, Cabify, 99, MEOTaxi and Chauffeur Prive are also all available in Lisbon.
