Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and the oldest city in Western Europe. It is served by Lisbon Humberto Delgado Airport, also known as Portela Airport, which is located well within city limits. The airport was thrown open to the public in 1942, during World War II.
Your flight to London from Lisbon will leave from Lisbon Humberto Delgado Airport, which is a short distance from the center of the city. It is Europe's 22nd largest airport and an important transit destination for many people traveling between continents. This airport has two terminals of which Terminal 1 is the largest.
All flights from Lisbon take off from Portela Airport and it is very easy to reach the airport from Lisbon city center. You can take Metro de Lisboa from Garo de Oriente or from the city center to the airport. From the city center, it takes around 15 minutes to reach the airport, while it takes just five minutes from Garo de Oriente bus and train station. You can also hop on one of the Carris city buses. Bus 208 connects Baixa in central Lisbon to the airport, while bus 783 connects Marquis of Pombal Square with Portela Airport. You can ride bicycles to the airport on dedicated cycle lanes until Terminal 1.
London is an important center of international culture and performing arts. The next time you visit London, take the opportunity to discover some of the best dance and drama venues in the world. Begin your journey at the National Theater, which hosts events at subsidized rates. Head toward Royal Court Theater for the choicest in new dramatic and contemporary plays. If you prefer ballet, the Royal Ballet and the English National Ballet are important destinations. Do not forget to visit the Queen Elizabeth Hall, where some of the most important dance performances are held. London is certainly a Mecca for performing arts such as dance and drama.
All flights from Lisbon to Heathrow land at Heathrow Airport, which is the largest and busiest in London. This airport is around 15 minutes away from Paddington Station in central London. You can also take one of the shuttle services or hail a taxi to reach your destination. As Heathrow Airport is not very far from London, your travel time should mostly be tolerable. You should consider yourself lucky if you land at Heathrow, as along with Gatwick, Luton and London City Airport, this too is located conveniently. However, Stansted and Southend airports are far away and may prove to be a long journey to the city center.
