Lisbon Airport

Humberto Delgado Airport is an international airport located seven kilometres northeast of the city centre of Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. The airport is the main international gateway to Portugal. As of 2021, it was the 16th-largest airport in Europe in terms of passenger volume, and carried 190,700,00 tonnes of cargo. It is an important European hub to Brazil, the largest European Star Alliance hub to South America and also a European hub to Africa.

The airport is the main hub of Portugal's flag carrier TAP Air Portugal, including its subsidiary TAP Express, as well as being a hub for low-cost airlines Ryanair and easyJet. It is a focus city for Azores Airlines, euroAtlantic Airways, Hi Fly and White Airways. The airport is run by ANA Aeroportos de Portugal, which was concessioned to the French group Vinci SA in February 2013.

Lisbon airport has consistently ranked dismally in customer satisfaction, with AirHelp polling it in last place amongst 132 airports in the world as of 2022. It is one of the most congested airports of Europe and one of the only major airports to have a runway directly over the city, notwithstanding plans to build a new airport elsewhere. These plans have for decades been postponed or suspended for a myriad of reasons.

Information

One of the most important air bases of the Portuguese Air Force, Ota Air Base is the main center for the training of Air Force personnel in the country, mainly for the ground school part of the training, with the flight training occurring mostly at Sintra Air Base (LPST).

Between 2008-2010 there were talks and proposals to build a new international airport at the air base's location, to replace the current Lisbon airport (LPPT), though these ultimately fell to ground due to the unsuitability of the soils for the project and the dangerous geography of the area (with a mountain ridge rising quickly to 500m after you take off from runway 35).

Information

Main gateway into the country of Portugal, with 26,670,000 passengers through it in 2017, it is the 20th busiest airport in Europe. The airport has grown by more than 10% in passenger numbers each year in the last 6 years, mostly due to the increasing trend of Lisbon being 'the' European city to visit in these last few years.

First opened in 1940, Lisbon Airport has continuously been the main Hub of the country's flag-carrier: TAP Air Portugal; which has most of its aircraft based here.
