Take the Bus at the sidewalk near the Arrivals, and exit the bus at the “Avenida da República” bus stop. Travel time to IST can be 20-40 minutes depending on the traffic. It takes about 10 minutes walking from the bus stop to IST.

  • Taxi:

There are two taxi stands within the perimeter of the airport’s main terminal, one at the arrivals floor and the other at the departures floor (above).
Often it’s better to take a taxi at the departures floor.
Ask the airport’s staff how to go from the arrivals to the departures floor.

All taxis are metered.

You may get updated information and obtain a Taxi Voucher at the Tourism Information Counter in the atrium of the Airport Arrivals Hall.

Travel cost to IST should be around 10-15 Euro (depending on hour and if luggage boot is used) and it should take from 15 to 30 minutes to get there, depending on traffic.

Most taxis are beige but some are black and green. If the customer is pleased with the service, a tip is usually given to the driver.


Whatever means of transport you choose, IST is easily reachable. Take any public transport that passes near "Alameda" (D. Afonso Henriques) or "Saldanha".

Several bus lines pass near IST (7, 16, 22, 40, 107, 718, 720, 726, 742, 767).
