Lisbon Airport Guide to Lisbon Airport (LIS)

Taxi at Lisbon Airport

By taxi you may get from Lisbon Airport to downtown within 20 minutes, given that is located 7 km southeast of the airport.

If you choose to take a taxi to downtown, you won’t have to worry about schedules and frequencies. It is by far the best option for those passengers who wish a door to door service from Lisbon Airport, since the city centre is really close to the airport.


There have been several reports which complained about being overcharged at Arrivals. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any chance you could experience the same at Departures, although risk decreases.

We recommend you to ask to the driver the cost of your trip to downtown Lisbon before boarding the vehicle. Do not accept rides of more than € 20.00.

Expect that drivers do not speak good English. It would be helpful to learn some basic words in Portuguese.

On the other hand, do not accept dropping you in a random place if the driver says it is more convenient for him or simply because your destination it is too close from Lisbon Airport.
