Check here what airlines offer flights from/to Porto.
The airport is located approximately 10 miles / 15 kilometers away from the meeting venue and is served by several modes of public transportation.
Taxi and Uber: The easiest and fastest way to get to from the airport to the meeting venue and /or your hotel is by taxi or Uber. These are transport services that are permanently available to travellers at the airport arrivals entrance/exit. Both offer you the possibility to schedule the trip in advance or immediately after your plane lands.
Average fare (Taxi one way): € 25,00
Average fare (Uber one way): € 15,00
Metro: Another possibility to consider, which is cheaper than the taxi (single ticket: € 2,00), is the metro. The Airport is served by a single line (Line E – purple) that runs every 20 to 30 minutes and will take you to the historic city centre (end of line: Trindade station) in the same amount of time. When you get off at Trindade station, take Line D – yellow. Detailed information about these and other travel options at the Porto Airport may be found here.
From Campanhã Train Station (for international visitors flying to Lisbon):
Porto is approximately 300 kms /205 miles away from Lisbon. If you are flying to Lisbon International Airport (Humberto Delgado airport) and planning to get to Porto by train (Alfa Pendular or Intercidades) you should buy a ticket at Lisbon’s Gare do Oriente Station to Campanhã Station, where you’ll need to get off. Once more, the taxi or Uber is rather convenient, since the conference venue is only 8 kms or 6 miles away from Campanhã Station and the price is likely to be around € 20-25 euros. Detailed information about trains, timetables, journey times and ticket fares may be found here.
