Lisbon Airport Guide to Lisbon Airport (LIS)

Lisbon Airport by Bus

Lisbon Airport is served by several bus lines which may take you to different key locations not only in downtown, also outside the city of Lisbon.

Please, note that the maximum baggage size for boarding any non-official airport bus is 50x40x20 cm. If your baggage exceeds it, you’ll have to board Lisbon Airport’s specific bus: Aerobus.

Our recommendation is to board either metro or taxi since buses in Lisbon aren’t 100% reliable and waiting times tend to be really tedious.
